Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase week 39 - Purple Posy


Hello, I'm back with the AWHT Colour Creations Showcase, this week featuring the beautiful Purple Posy. Purple Posy is a lovely purple that coordinates perfectly with the other purples in our range, Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather.

This week I have chosen a new range of products available as a pre release from the up coming 2021-2022 Annual Catalogue called the Butterfly Brilliance Collection.

All of the butterflies are one big stamp, all joined together. I stamped this on Fluid 100 Water Color paper in Stazon Black.

I coloured the butterflies with inks and Water Painters. Unfortunately the Purple Posy ink pad is not longer available due to quality control issues, but I still have one I can use. The other two ink colours are Magenta Madness and Gorgeous Grapes.

I water coloured the background with very diluted Balmy Blue ink and the wide Water Painter. Once the background was dry I attached the butterflies in a line down the center with Glue Dots and Dimensionals.

The greeting was made using the Art Gallery Bundle and White Emboss Powder. I twisted a piece of the white twine from the Snail Mail pack and attached it to the back of the greeting. The background was mounted on a Basic Black mat and then onto a Purple Posy card base.
I have already had a wonderful time making cards using this collection, I'm looking forward to sharing it with my customers and class attendees.

For more beautiful creations featuring Purple Posy head to Cathy's blog to see what the talented Art With Heart Team have to share with you.

Please contact me with any questions, I'm always happy to talk stamping and card making.

Thanks for visiting,
