Colour Creations - Crushed Curry
August 17, 2022
As the Daffodils are coming into season, and the occasional winters day puts on brilliant sunshine, who wouldn't want to use happy Crushed Curry to brighten up your day?
This week, my fellow Art With Heart Stampin' Up! demonstrators are showcasing this super sunny colour, so join us on the blog hop to see how everyone has used it.
I decided I wanted to include fluttering butterflies in my Crushed Curry creation this week, so I got our Butterfly Brilliance stamp set and the coordinating butterfly Wings Dies.
I stamped one set of butterflies onto the Crushed Curry sheet from Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper. Then I used my Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker to add a little extra depth to the colour.
I stamped more butterflies using Stazon Jet Black ink on white card and created some depth by cutting a rectangle from the middle and layering it onto Crushed Curry card.
The largest butterfly was attached to this with Mini Glue Dots and fluttering wings folded upwards.
I used the So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker to add a tiny bit of colour to the other butterflies on the top layer, just to differentiate them from the bottom layer.
As you can see from my first photo - I have leftover pieces to make more cards with - that makes me happy! And what's more, straight outside my window, I can see Daffodil heads starting to form on the bulbs which have popped up. I can't wait to see what lovely colour and form they are!
Time to go check out what my stamping friends from the Art With Heart Team have also created featuring Crushed Curry. The next blog on the hop belongs to the lovely and very talented Andrea Sargent. Click the box to go to her post.
If you are hopping along and find a broken link, all the participants are listed on Cathy's blog here.
Scroll down to see all of the products I have used, and have a great rest of the week!
Yellow looks so fabulous with black and white and you've really make Crushed Curry pop with this stunning card, Kathryn. I love the way you've only coloured a few of the butterflies, it's such a well balanced card.

What a great idea for this colour. The butterflies look fantastic, and I love how you've coloured some of the ones on the top layer.

Very pretty way to use those gorgeous butterflies, and showcase Crushed Curry, Kathryn. It is a rather sunshiney colour ... perhaps I should warm to it a bit more!

Oh wow - a delightful card Kathryn. I love your layering with the coloured butterflies on the top centre layer and the 3D butterfly. Beautiful. Xxx

Snap on the colour choice Kathryn. I also love Crushed Curry with black and white. You have created an effective look by only colouring some of the butterflies and not all. Love this card.

Butterflies are so delicate and I love how you added the top stamped layer and coloured those butterflies in a softer tone of So Saffron. Gorgeous card, Kathryn.

Stunning card Kathryn. The Crushed Curry butterflies work so well with the black and white background. I love that you chose to stamp directly onto the dsp as it creates a lovely depth of colour. The 3D butterfly finishes your card of beautifully.
