Week 40 – Real Red
Real Red is lovely bright red, but it is not a colour I use a lot of. My first instinct was to stamp and colour a rose, but wanted to try something completely different. I had a sample of this Snail Mail DSP which has Real Red listed as one of the colours. Because I don’t have anything else from this suite, I decided to really focus on the papers. One sheet has lots of larger snails, so I cut one out with my paper snips.
My card base is Real Red with a Basic White layer. The patterned paper is one sheet, but I cut a third off and flipped it over for a bit of contrast and I quite like the sentiments in the speech bubbles. The Ornate Borders die is used to add some interest between the two pieces of DSP.
Once again I used a Square Vellum Doilie to soften the bold patterned paper.
Are you wondering where I got the mushroom? I made it myself using the Ice Cream Builder Punch for the hood (Real Red & Blushing Bride), a 1/8″ circle punch for the dots and cut the white stem by hand!
The ‘happy birthday’ sentiment is stamped in Real Red and I used my electric cutting machine to cut it out or you can use paper snips to fussy cut.
