Color Splash

Hello there ... 
It's bank holiday here and un-traditionally for the UK ... we have had glorious sunshine ... it's been beautiful!
DH and I went out and sat in the sun drinking coffee and then browsed a few shops before he took himself off to play a few holes of golf ... which gave me a little time to make a card!

I haven't entered any challenges for the longest time but I saw that The PlayDate Cafe is having a color splash challenge and I really love them ... even though I don't get to play much I still look in every week and take in the beautiful creations...

So here is the color splash photo


I love the magenta colour ... though I don't have any ink in this colour and sad to say little paper of this colour either ... and I wanted to stamp and paperpiece ... 


I first stamped a background with a chicken wire stamp by Inkylicious straight onto my card ...
Then added some dottie Washi Tape


The rose is my La Blanche stamp again and I love how dramatic it looks stamped in black ink ... then came the paper piecing ... the thing is the paper I used only had bit of the magenta in it so I stamped a few times and then just pieced the rose together ... I don't think you can see it but I covered the rose in Diamond glaze too 


Two little corner pieces cut with a very old Provo Craft die completed my card and I'm just happy that I got to create today ... especially as the challenge finishes in another day!

I'll be back tomorrow with a DT project ... Thanks so much for stopping by

Have a beautiful evening/day

Such a fabulous take on the challenge photo, Ros. Beautifully stamped and paper pieced, too.

Hasn't it been a glorious sunny day? So long since we could sit out and enjoy our gardens here in the UK x

Definitely worth all the effort you put into it, Ros.
Diamond glaze is wonderful to make that bit of difference that makes all the difference!

The chicken wire stamp is fabulous. You did a lovely job making the rose fit the color scheme. I really need to get some more washi tape. It's so much fun. Hugs!

This looks so cool. Love the black with white with that splash of rich pink!

Sue Lelli said...

I just LOVE this card, Ros! The chicken wire and washi tape are FAB but that rose is just STUNNING!

Smashing card Ros, love the outcome of that beautiful rose! You're right, it's very powerful in black with just one colour! Hugs, Ira xox

I love that challenge - and the card you made for it. Still haven't done any paper piecing yet... but then I'd be thrilled to just find a minute to sit down and do any crafting at all!
