Well back to Blue Friday as I have a whole heap of blue cards to show you (may have to make next week blue week!) Toady will find me prepping for the glitter pot 2 day Spring Spectacular Demonstration. Click HERE to see more details.
Back to today's card and whilst in keeping with the theme I have again used the weaving dies in a different format this time I have used the classic weaving die as the weft and the striped weaving die for the warp. I cut the classic die in Aqua (hope that counts as blue) and cut the striped die in coconut white. I then wove them together to give this look which reminds me of oxford stripe fabric.
I matched this with a simple set of frames in white and Aqua cut using the square dies in spellbinders 6x6 matting basics A & B making a smaller frame in white and a larger frame in the duck egg and glued them together, this offsets the weave beautifully!
Next I made a double pierced flag using the 2 largest dies in the pierced flags set, one in white and one in duck egg and stamped the sentiment form my Butterfly Dreams set using the new Colour Cloud landing inks form Cosmic Shimmer. I used the same ink with a smoothie through the Native mask from that special touch to create the background.
To finish the card I made a satin rose using red line tape and Sue Wilson's technique to make the flower click on Sue's blog HERE for more detail on this technique. I added a messy bow of the fine ribbon that comes in the set I used the Ocean double sided ribbon pack which perfectly matches the Aqua foundation card. I added 2 pearls swirls behind and placed the whole embellishment at the end of the flag.
The colours harmonise because they are all made to harmonise that Is one of the brilliant thing about the Cosmic Shimmer and Creative Expressions ranges!
