AWH Blog Hop: In ColoursHi!
Tonight the Art With Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring the current In Colours. There are 10 to choose from, including the new 2019 - 2021 In Colours and the carrying over 2018 - 2020 In Colours. If you would like a copy of the 2019 - 2020 Annual Catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.
For my card I selected three of the new In Colours - can you work out which ones?
Hopefully you worked out that they were Pretty Peacock, Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose.
Last weekend I was invited to attend my friend Kathryn's team stamping day. We like to share ideas and projects, and the lovely Caroline shared some samples she'd made using the Block Fill technique. My card is a bit of a cross between it and the Inlaid Dies technique. Instead of stamping the butterflies and colouring the rest of the rectangle black, I cut a black rectangle and then cut the butterfly shapes from it before replacing the cut bits with stamped and cut butterflies. Hopefully that makes sense!
I finished it off by using a fine tipped marker to add a couple of lines around the rectangle. I added some dots to the inner line, just for a bit of added interest. I quite like this technique, and I think I'll be giving it a go again.
I also used some of the new Pretty Peacock Scalloped Linen Ribbon to back my sentiment. I had to chop it down the middle and adhere it to the back of the sentiment, but it was very easy to do. A bit of Linen Thread and a few black sequins, and the front was done!
I repeated the same elements on the inside - the three colours, the butterflies and the hand drawn border. Thanks for showing me such a fun technique, Caroline!
That's it for me, next you are off to visit the lovely Vicki Boucher at her blog to see what wonderful In Colour deliciousness she has whipped up!
