How Fabulous

Color Hues #40- Blue and Tan

Having been playing with this idea on a different creation, it seemed natural to continue to make a 2nd card that would fit this challenge. The border die is a Gemini one called Blossoming Borders, the Hexagon dies are also from Gemini, the flourish is an old die but I don’t know the maker, the stamps used are from a GKD set called Fabulous Flowers and I fussy cut the small flowers once they were coloured. The tan PP is from a paper pad I’ve had forever and is made by Momento. I used scrap pieces of blue CS for the hexagons as well as the tan PP which I paper pieced into the white frame. I cut the border on the initial layer and then added the flourish as well as the two blue hexagon shapes. Then I added the larger hexagon which I inked using Blueprint Sketch. I liked the idea of several different blues so the frame, bow and hexagons are all different. The flowers were coloured with Inktense pencils and a bit of old gold pen for the centers. Embellishments are from Trinity Stamps.

Here is the first card I made using a similar design …

    1. Thanks Lisa – I liked my first card and it was inspired by something seen on Pinterest but I never posted it for some reason. I did have a couple of hexagons left over and decided to use them here.


    1. The Fabulous Flower set was useful because the result is a sketchy type flower and is easy to fussy cut. Glad you like this one.


  1. So pretty. Great colors and architectural design. The scallop edger softens the hexagon design which brings all of your elements together.

    1. Thanks a lot. I thought doing a card like this would be a bit different than what others may create for the challenge.


  2. That flourish die was probably one of the first I purchased and at the time I didn’t use it much because my skill level meant I struggled with ideas. I’ve been using it a fair amount since. Glad you like the card.


  3. Wat a great mix of elements and depth with different shades of blue. I also love the decorative edge and the sweet string bow! Thanks for playing along at Color Hues, Johanna! Your second card, is just as pretty! Take care!


  4. Your hexagons, flowers and flourishes cards are lovely! I’m especially taken with the blue and tan; thrilled that you shared this in the Color Hues gallery!
