Colour Hue Florals

Color Hues #24-Turquoise and Coral

This card started out as something entirely different in my head, but as I was playing with the flowers I realized my idea wasn’t going to work because the flowers were bigger than I needed. I’ve had these paper flowers forever and only used one or two of them. With limited access to my supplies when these popped into my hands I thought colouring them would work for the challenge. Had I been able to find the stamp set and matching die I was looking for I would have been able to do the wreath idea which is what was in my head.

I pulled out the distress inks Abandoned Coral and Broken China and brushed the colours onto the petals. I had 3 of the larger flowers and 3 of the smaller so I put them together to get some dimension. I also added the brad centers which I enhanced with some Sakura glaze. The PP is from StampinUp and was gifted to me by a good friend who also crafts. I cut a strip to add behind the flowers and then popped up the flowers on top. Using a sentiment strip from a new set by MFT I stamped in the same colours and then clear heat embossed it. I cut it up into pieces and glued as shown. This stamp was designed for a slimline design but works great cut up. The gems were added for some sparkle.

  1. Thanks Gayle. I’m having fun trying to create although not finding things I need is a source of frustration at times. My craft room should be installed soon though as all the cabinetry is now here in the garage.


    1. Thanks Judy – I realized after I had posted it that your entry must have inspired me in some way as my flowers are somewhat similar. I didn’t intentionally copy you and it always interests me to see how cards can be similar and yet still individual.

  2. I bet you are getting a little frustrated with not having your stash easily available, sure it will be worth the wait. Your pretty flowers look fab against the DP, thanks for being inspired by the current Color Hues combo. 🙂

    1. Thanks for commenting and yes it is a bit frustrating, but such is life on occasion. I am lucky my hubby indulges my crafting and is paying for my room without complaint.


  3. Well, you sure made great use of the supplies you have on hand. I love the flowers and the creative way you incorporated the colors in the sentiment too. Thanks for playing along at Color Hues!
