Something Different Saturday...

Happy 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!

Enjoy...

  5. Morning John, well I am with you on this one, it is not a set of colours I would have put together but the more I see it the more I like it and what I do like is the panels and the way you have fitted these with the striplet die, another one to add to my growing pile of things to try. I purchased some of the honeydew foundation card recently and although I have so far only used it once I really like how the colour transforms a card, wonderful, so crafters if you get a chance to purchase some of it I would highly recommend it.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

  6. Hi John,
    Yes a very pretty card in an unusual colour way, Roccoco die is delicate and with the bows for adornment what more does it need.
    Love and crafty hugs

  14. Great concept and in colours Iwouldn't usually choose either So I'm not sure I think it's another of those projects I'd like to see in the "flesh" Fab idea though I'm already thinking what colours I could do it in

  15. Morning John, I really like this card !! It is quite 'abstract' to me, but I love the combination of colours you have used, and you have 'tied' them all in, beautifully.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx
