Alternative Colors

by Debby

Altenew BAF Chysanthemum Debby Hughes 4Hi!

It’s Debby here today and I have a card to share showcasing colors which are a little bit alternative. Don't get me wrong. I love pink and purple flowers and green leaves, but sometimes it is nice to break the mold and try something different.

ALTERNATIVE COLORS

Altenew BAF Chysanthemum Debby Hughes 1I have all my inks swatched and find this a useful way to try out different color combinations. I play around putting different swatches together until I'm happy.

Altenew BAF Chysanthemum Debby Hughes 3I stamped the Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum in a combination of ButtercreamOrange CreamAutumn Blaze, and Firebrick and the leaves in Mountain MistLagoon, and Emerald. I used the matching dies from the set to cut two flowers and a bunch of leaves.

Altenew BAF Chysanthemum Debby Hughes 2I foam mounted the florals to a card base, cut and scored from Pale Gray cardstock. I felt the arrangement needed filling out slightly though so I stamped a few sprigs from the Crown Bloom Stamp Set in Silverstone ink, die cut with the matching dies, and tucked them in.

Altenew BAF Chysanthemum Debby Hughes 4The sentiment is also from the Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum set, stamped in clear embossing ink on a dark grey card and white heat embossed before trimming to a banner and foam mounting over the flowers. As a final touch, I added a sprinkle of sequins.

The bright colors look great with this stamp set. I have this set, so may try something brighter than I typically use.
