Colour Creations Blog Hop week 30 - Happiness Abounds Watercolour Mint Macaron


It's Wednesday evening and the Art With Heart Team are back with another Colour Creations Blog Hop, this week featuring Mint Macaron. Mint Macaron it a lovely soft gray/green from our Subtles colour family.

This week's card was inspired by a couple of cards done by a team member Andrea Sargent earlier this year. I've used similar techniques but a different colour scheme.

The colours used to make this card were of course Mint Macaron for the card base, leaves and the masked background, and Petal Pink, Calypso Coral and very pale Polished Pink for the flowers.

I heat embossed all of the flowers, leaves and the greeting in Gold Embossing Powder and then coloured the flowers and leaves with Water Painters. The greeting is from the Go To Greetings set and has been cut out with one of the Tailor Made Tag dies. I coloured a small piece of White Crinkled Seam binding with the Pale Polished Pink Blends Marker to go through the tag hole.

I used one of the Artistic Mix Decorative Masks and a blending brush to add some Mint Macaron ink to the Very Vanilla card front. The mat behind the Very Vanilla is Evening Evergreen card stock.
Once again I had to add a couple of my favourite embellishments, the Brushed Brass Butterflies.

Now it's time to see what the other Art With Heart Team members have to share with you. The next hop is Rachel Palmieiri, I'm looking forward to seeing what she has to share with us.

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

Happy stamping,
