Colour Creations - Soft Succulent

The Art With Heart team creators are bringing you another beautiful colour tonight in our colour creations blog hop.

HeaderThis week, we give a final salute to one of our much loved 2021-2023 In Colours - Soft Succulent. It is a real favourite with many people.

If you turn to page 179 in your current catalogue - the one which finishes in a couple of weeks - you will see a green card with the two chairs with cat images from the Stampin' Rewards stamp set SIT STAY RELAX. I used this card as inspiration for my projects tonight. I switched the greens up to Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen, and swapped the cardstock circles for very pretty Designer Series Paper circles.

Soft Succulent Sit Stay Relax1

The first card uses a rectangle card front of gold foiled pattern from the Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper. I stamped the chair image with Soft Succulent, and used Early Espresso and Daffodil Delight watercolour pencils to add a little yellow and brown.

Don't you love the way the sunlight hits the gold foil on the background paper?

On the second card I have stamped the chair image with Evening Evergreen, stamped flowers from the Jar of Flowers stamp set onto the Soft Succulent card base, and die-cut circles from Texture Chic and Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper.

The Layering Circles Dies were so handy for these projects as I think different size circles always look good layered together. For the cats in chairs images and greeting, I used the Scalloped Contours Dies - which will be carrying over into our new catalogue.

Two very cute cards Kathryn. Love the yellow added to the chair in the first, and the flowers stamped in the background of the second.

Great selection of DSPs, Kathryn, and I love those chairs with the kitty cats. I can image these in a sitting room on your farm!

Both very cute cards Kathryn - I love how you have used the watercolour pencils on the first card. Very effective.
