Well, it's that time of the week again, and the wonderful Tara has come up with another great colour scheme for the Colour Create Challenge for this week-peaches and aqua. The optional twist is DIY flowers-ie no shop bought flowers. And here is my card for this week:
Now unbeknown to Tara when I saw our assignment I was a bit nervous......OK a lot nervous.....OK I was panicking a smidge....for two reasons.....1. I have never put just these two colours on a card before and had no idea what it would look like, and 2. I have never made a flower before (shameful I know for a seasoned card maker like me to admit lol).
However, in addition, I knew I did not have any designer papers that would fit this colour scheme..... so I thought OK I'll create my own background....simple....just get out an aqua and peach ink pad......but after searching for ages, I could find nothing in peach........panic started to set in again...
Just as I was about to give up, there, lurking in the back of a cupboard, unopened, was a cat's eye ink pad in......wait for it....PEACH!! I couldn't have been happier had I won the lottery....oh all right maybe a bit......but I did let out a little shriek of joy!!
And so this card was born....and do you know I think it's the easiest and quickest card I've ever made....a little bit of stamping....cut out the petals...add a little bit of ribbon-job done!!
I used one of those build a bloom stamp sets....unfortunately I bought it ages ago, never used it but removed the wrapper so I'm not sure who makes it but I know there are several versions on the market...
The background peach stamp is my ever faithful Melissa Frances and the swirl is a new stamp I bought from Collage Press...I only got it this week and absolutely love it.
Well, I really hope you are able to join in this week, it will be fantastic to see what your take on it is....and do check out the blog and rest of the DT cards for some ideas and wonderful inspiration.
