Art With Heart Colour Creations week 31 - Old Olive


Hello, this week the Art With Heart Team are featuring Old Olive in the Colour Creations Showcase. Old Olive is our longest serving green and is always my go to green for foliage.
This week I am using Old Olive with one of my new stamp and die bundles, Simply Succulents.

For my card I stamped the main floral image in Memento ink and coloured it with my Blends markers. The colours I used are listed below.

The bucket image was also stamped in Memento ink and coloured with Smokey Slate and Cajun Craze Blends Markers. I cased the colouring of the bucket from the very talented Alisa Tilsner. It really looks like the bucket has started to rust. I love getting inspiration from my fellow demonstrators, it's a wonderful community to belong to.

I cut out the floral and bucket image using the coordinating dies, the Potted Succulent dies.

The border around the white card stock is cut using the Stitched Whimsy dies. The greeting is from the Simply Succulent stamp set and is cut out using the Potted Succulent dies. It has been stamped in Memento ink on Soft Sea Foam card stock.

The only other element on this card is a strip of Oh So Ombre DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalogue.

For more Old Olive inspiration please head to Cathy's blog for a complete list of tonight's participants.

All of the products I have used for tonight's card are listed below and most are in our Jan to June Mini Catalogue. If you live in Australia and do not have a demonstrator, contact me and I will send you a copy of both these new catalogues.

Thank you for visiting,

Happy stamping,
