I love the colours of Autumn & I love the fall flowers lingering in the gardens during this Indian Summer. In my neighbourhood the coneflowers are still hanging on & although the new hybrids come in some new colours I used the Blends that I have to "hybridize" my own.
Here's a Calypso Coral variety!
With a Mossy Meadow card base, I added a layer of Dandy Garden DSP (retired) that provided that perfect late summer backdrop. I coloured the image, stamped in Memento Black ink, with Calypso Coral & Old Olive Blends, highlighting the centre with a touch of Bronze. After die-cutting with the matching dies, I adhered the flowers to a Basic White tag for an exclamation point. The Tailor Made Tags Dies aren't just for tags. The large stitched tag adds a focal point to the card, don't you think? Some Linen Thread & a simple "thank-you" in a classy font adds the perfect sentiment.
Sometimes the gorgeous imagery just speaks for itself.
The Black & White image is perfect on the checked DSP from the Pattern Party DSP. A sparkly knot of Black Organdy ribbon & some black sequins are perfect with the line drawings.
The Nature's Harvest stamp set is a beauty. I love that it comes with matching dies so that I can scatter flowers everywhere! Use your Blends to colour & match things up with coordinating DSP.
Copy nature or create your own palette. Just don't forget to share!
