Aprils Child in Buttermilk...
I know its really not a usual colour for me but when I first designed my paper pack I was determined that I couldn't call a paper Pack Spring Selection without a soft spring like yellow and this is the colour / shade I came up with. I have to admit that yellow is not my colour but for some reason this shade really sings to me!
This is one of a series of cards I have made, all with the same dies and embellishments but in each of the 6 spring shades, that hopefully highlight the paper pad. I will be demonstrating this card in other colours at Grafton Crafts tomorrow in Bicton click HERE for details of the showroom. This will be my first live demo of my new ranges and I have to admit I am little nervous of how they will go down!
This set of cards will also feature on my Hochanda shows starting at 8pm Monday night so you will get a chance to see them in more detail then.
I stamped the sentiment form the Springs Child stamp set which continues the idea of a poem, handwritten by me, for each month detailing the positive attributes of people born that month. This set covers March, April and may.
I also used the Dotty Daisy A4 embossing folder for the background as the pattern matches so well and this will feature on the shows on Monday and Tuesday. I shaded this with lemon meringue colour cloud blending ink and matted it with primrose foundation card. Next I added layer of the paper, the Australian collection background and a piece of the spring trail paper in buttermilk.
I hope you can tune in next week to see all the products in the first half of the release demonstrated.
A quick note the bright white card I have been using is a relatively new colour of foundation card and is different from the coconut white I always use.
