Happiness Abounds

This is my first card created with a new bundle called Happiness Abounds. In the catalogue it is shown in really bright and vibrant colours, I wanted to tone things down a little so used the colours featured in Texture Chic dsp which I love.

I’ve actually created this one for a CASE the catalogue challenge. I’ve used the same layering as the catalogue card, how clever is the ‘notebook top’ detail on the Pool Party layer!

Once I had chosen the colours of Pool Party, Petal Pink and Soft Succulent, I stamped and coloured my flowers and leaves.

When colouring an image in a single colour, I find it quicker and easier to first colour all over with the light blend marker and then add a little dark detail, building it up gradually until I'm happy with the shading.

My card base is Petal Pink, on which sits the stunningly beautiful Texture Chic dsp with gold foil detail. Next there is the Pool Party layer with the notebook die cut top edge and the sentiment embossed in white.

I added the stamped roses and leaves and then used gold Simply Elegant Trim and gold Brushed Metallic Dots to compliment the gold foil of the dsp.


I hope you like my version of the card, I don't know about you but I sometimes find it tricky to deviate from colour palette the stamp set is shown in but I do like the more subtle shades.
