Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 19 – Granny Apple Green
I’m really pleased with how my background turned out on this card – Granny Apple Green is not really my go to colour, it’s a little bright – but I think it really makes these poppies pop!!!
The background is sponged darker from the outer edges and lighter into the centre. Once I had the right amount of ink applied, I dripped some water droplets onto the card and sat it aside to dry.
I die cut the poppy layers in Blushing Bride, Melon Mambo and Basic Black. The Blushing Bride layers I embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.
The leaves are die cut in Granny Apple Green and embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder. I also stamped some of the leaves as well, along with those little star type images from the Pattern Play stamp set. The sentiment (Itty Bitty Greetings) is stamped multiple times to get that lovely dark colour using the Stamparatus.
The poppies are glued together and then two glued to the card front and the last one has some dimensionals under it.
