Blog Hops, cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!

PAPER ADVENTURES TEAM BLOG HOP – APRIL 2020!

I’m so honoured to be hopping along as a Guest with Kelly Kent and the Paper Adventures Team today.  Such a creative group of people. 🙂

The Blog Hop this month is a colour Theme with Pretty Peacock, Whisper White and Melon Mambo.  I love both these colours but have to say haven’t used these colours together.  So I wasn’t sure what I would do with them.

This is the card I have created.  I think we are all dreaming of a tropical paradise right now. 🙂

I have used the Timeless Tropical Bundle for this card.  The card was based on a recent Fab Friday sketch #187.

The frangipani flowers are stamped in Memento Black Ink on to Shimmery White card.  I took the liberty to use this card for the watercolouring. 🙂  The flowers were coloured with the ink pad and the Aquapainter.

The Pretty Peacock card piece was cut with one of the Stitched Nested Dies and then embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.

When I was assembling the card I felt the white card was a bit plain.   I lightly swiped over some ink with the Aquapainter and Melon Mambo Ink.  I would suggest you use the Shimmery White for this or even Watercolour paper.  The Whisper White “pills” up a bit.  It was risky but I thought I might be stretching it to use the Shimmery White for that.  It turned out ok but then it is partly covered. 🙂

Now continue on your Blog Hop.  You are off to Siobhan’s blog -> HERE or click on the NEXT button below.
