Something Different Saturday...
Well it is a card however the difference this week is the colour choice not one I would normally use but I have to admit that I like it!
I stared by cutting the filigree section from Rococo striplet in honeydew foundation card I just cut the detail into the card and didn't use the outline. Next I cut 2 of the dies form the double pierced backgrounds one in bright white and one in primrose I cut these together into 3 sections making a band in the middle the seam width as one of the panels on the striplet die. I stuck these back together and cut the outline die form one piece being careful to make sure that the centre panel fitted the striplet.
Next i added the other piece, the primrose and white panel, behind the cut striplet and added a resin rose in a matching yellow on the centre of each piece of the striplet design as shown.
I matted this on primrose foundation card and added a few layers of the honeydew, primrose and white for definition. Finally I added seam binding bows in matching yellow and green at the edge with an 8mm pearl in the centre to hide the knot and join.
a very different colour combination for me but hopefully it may make us all think about using colours that are outside our comfort zone!
