Welcome to the Art With Heart Colour Creation Blog Hop for Week 41. This week the team is looking at the red colour of Poppy Parade!

 I have had quite a few weeks off from the blog hop but I am going to try and get back to sharing with you.

Today I have broken out my stamping blends and the Stipple Rose, I know I am a bit late to the party but I have not been crafting much over the past couple of months so I am now back at it and I thought I would start slowly and not do a fancy fold and get my mojo back by doing a bit of colouring!

This is the colour combinations that I have used in my colouring of this gorgeous Stippled Rose stamp!

I started by stamping the large Stippled Rose in Memento Black ink as I was using the Poppy Parade Blends, if I was using a lighter and less vibrant colour I might have stamped the rose in Smokey Slate. I then took the Dark Poppy Parade Blends and coloured around the base of the petals and where the darker ink is of the rose has been stamped. I then used the Light Poppy Parade to colour over the dark and our a little further. Finally I used the Dark Petal Pink to add a light to the petals on the roses!

Similarly to the flowers I have coloured the leaves the same by using Dark and Light Mossy Meadow and Dark and Light Old Olive. 

I had stamped the image on Basic White card stock but I thought to make it look a little bit more "Antique" I would layer it on a the base of Very Vanilla that I have embossed with the Exposed Brick 3D embossing folder. I have then cut out some leaves using the Stippled Rose dies to go under the die cut out focal point of the coloured Rose. The Sentiment from the Stippled Rose is cut out using the Deckled Rectangle dies!

If you have any questions about my project today or about the Jan-June Mini please do not hesitate to contact me.

This is a beautiful bundle, and you've used it to make a really striking card, Sharon. I like how you added Petal Pink to the roses. Lovely, elegant, card.

Such a lovely card Sharon and a nice break away from all of the Trusty Tools cards. Yet this stamp set is the perfect choice to feature Poppy Parade.

Kate Morgan said...

Glorious red roses, Sharon, so beautiful with the touches of Petal Pink. The embossed background is perfect too!
