Colour Creations Blog Hop week 16 - Crushed Curry Wattle


Hello friends, welcome to week 16 of the Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team. For week 16 we are featuring one of my least used colours Crushed Curry. 

I usually use this colour on autumn themed cards with Cajun Craze, but I have just received the Brightest Beauty Bundle and decided that Crushed Curry would be the perfect colour for wattle flowers.

I used Sponge Daubers to apply Crushed Curry and Old Olive ink to the main floral stamp. This was stamped on to Basic White card stock then cut with a Deckled Rectangle Die.

To highlight the flowers I used one of the dies to cut some flowers from Crushed Curry card stock. I attached some of the flowers with Multipurpose Glue directly to the image and attached the others with Dimensionals to add a bit of dimension to the card.

The final touch was some Wink of Stella pen added to the card stock flowers, which adds a lovely bit of sparkly to the card.
For more Crushed Curry inspiration it's now time to see what the my lovely friend Christine Blain has to share with us. Either click on her name or on the graphic below.

If you have any issues with the links on our blog hop head over to Cathy Proctor's blog as she is the wonderful host of the Colour Creations Blog Hops and has a complete list of tonight's participants.

Thanks for visiting and happy stamping,
