Colour Creations Showcase – Blackberry Bliss

AWHT Colour Creations Showcase

Tonight’s Stampin’ Up! colour is Blackberry Bliss!

My card tonight was inspired by Jennifer Frost who shared this background technique, although I need lots more practice at it!!!! 😉

It was a fun way of creating a more abstract background to my card.

I started with some Purple Posy card stock and began swiping the Highland Heather inkpad across the card, top to bottom, mainly around the edges. Then to build up the colour, I went over it with Rich Razzleberry then Blackberry Bliss ink.  It creates such a fun texture and I’m sure it will look different every time.

Then I stamped the parfum and flowers in Memento ink onto Purple Posy card, die cut them out and coloured them with Stampin’ Blends and Wink of Stella.

The larger leaves are die cut with the new Forever Flourishing dies, but I stamped the floral image across the leaves in coordinating colour to give it some interest. This same floral image has been stamped in the top left and bottom right corners of the background card in Blackberry Bliss ink for a subtle impact.

I stamped the dots in Versamark ink, added White Emboss Powder and heat set them. I tie in the white, I also added two smaller leaf dies and a white bow. The perfum and roses are popped up on dimensionals.
