I didn’t have the Yellow that was requested in the challenge, so I used the closest that I had to it……..
- Y17 – Golden Yellow
- V06 – Lavender
- BG13 – Mint Green
and then added to that:
- YE31 – Brick Beige
- YR14 – Caramel
- E41 Pearl White
- C1 – Cool Grey 1
- Sakura Silver Gelly roll for centre flowers and Crystal Art Inst Glitter with Sakura Quickie Glue Pen
I wanted to go sublte for this one, so I coloured the centres of the flowers with the Mint Green, and then did one pass of the yellow on the petals, added spots of violet to the petals, and went over again with yellow to blend it together ….. I had some of the beautiful mottled pansies in mind that are in our garden at the moment. Then I went over the leaves and stalks with mint green, and filled in the centre with the peal white. As usual all around the outside with cool grey 1. The ribbon was coloured in the violet.
I first of all just coloured the centres with the silver sakura gelly roll, but it was a bit flat, so in the end I used my fail safe of white PM pearls here and there and coloured then with the mint green – just having plain pearls and colouring always means I can co-ordinate (it works on ribbon too), and just then used the Quickie Glue pen on the few remaining centres and the ribbon on the pot – it gives gives a bit more texture.
The card blank is a tiny one from SU (I got lots of them in a goodie bag last year), and so this has given me an idea, I’m going to start doing more cards this size and then bundle them up as gifts packs in holders for Xmas. The stamp set is SU Garden Playtime, and I’ve had it probably since last summer (bought it from Caz), and never used it.
I thought I had quite a few colours, but it’s clear that I am going to need more to keep up, and Stamp Galaxy/Toodles and Binks have been thinking about becoming Copic Distributors, so would anyone be interested in pre-ordering sets or single colours if we did?
PS: Uggghh, I’ve just realised that the cardstock looks really blue in the picture, when it’s actually a bright peakcock green colour.
