This week I decided to take part in the CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge again - the latest one #161 is a colour one.
These colours are a little challenging to me because they are not ones that I use that often. I love Wisteria Wonder and use have it on occassion, but Elegant Eggplant is a different matter.
I've been wanting to use my Rose Garden Thinlits Dies for sometime and thought it could be something I could use for this challenge. This is what I came up with.
This is a pretty simple technique. I used the die on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and removed the flower. I then placed a slightly smaller piece of Elegant Eggplant cardstock behind it to fill in the gap. The whole thing was then glued to the Wisteria Wonder base card.
I then die cut another rose from a Silver Foil cardstock sheet and carefully glued this in place.
The greeting comes from the co-ordinating Rose Wonder stamp set. I stamped it and the border in Elegant Eggplant onto a piece of Wisteria Wonder and cut it out using another of the dies from the Rose Garden Thinlits.
I did umm and ahh about adding some bling to the greeting but decided against it because it detracted from the silver foil.
The inside is simple - three stamped images of the smaller flower from the stamp set.
Please feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.
