And More Layering

PE: Colour Connoisseur at Colour Me…! and Just Add Ink Honorable Mention!

Colour Connoisseur for challenge #83

Hello! I am back with three more cards!

Firstly, a card with simple stencil coloring for the background –


I colored the card panel using Memory Box Texture Rhapsody and ColorBox Lilac, Eggplant inks. I stamped the sentiments from Winnie & Walter Big Bold You and The Big, The Bold & The Happy, fuzzy cut the ‘love’ and foam mounted them all on the card panel. Finally embellished them using sequins and rhinestones.

Colour Me #83: Monochrome - Wisteria WonderFor my second card, I went with handmade pattern paper and many layers.


I first cut out the card panels using Spellbinders A2 Curved Matting Basics. I made the pattern paper by stamping the tiny triangles from Winnie & Walter Scenery: Its A Wonderful Pennant and Victorian Velvet, Wild Honey and Faded Jeans distress inks. I die cut the sentiment from the foremost panel using Lawn Fawn Cole’s ABCs and stamped the sentiment fromย Paper Smooches Sentiment Sampler on a vellum strip and stapled it to he card panel on one end and glued it on the other. For the dotted background, I used all three inks and Technique Tuesday Lots of Dots.

CAS Colors & Sketches #136 (Blushing Bride, So Saffron, Wisteria WonderFor my third card – I finally have used pattern papers from a single set!! Its an achievement for me, trust me – not that its difficult to do so, but because its difficult for me to churn out a card with many pattern papers! ๐Ÿ™‚


The papers are all from Fancy Pants Country Boutique. I cut them out using Itsy Bitsy Square dies and after adhering them on the card base, I cut out another smaller piece and colored it using Hero Arts Soft Pool ink and adhered it beside. I then marked and cut out another panel to stamp the sentiment on – Micia Butterflies in Spring stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Finally I die cut the leaves from a die fro Sizzix Die Flowers from black card stock and adhered it using half glue and half foam dots.
