'Thinking of You' - Global Design Project 'Colour Challenge' #gdp049

It's a gorgeous trio of colours for this weeks Global Design Project 'Colour Challenge' #gdp049.
We are having some amazing Spring-like weather at the moment, and these colours remind me of Spring! It's just around the corner...

I have made a couple of creations this week, and the first creation is a Sympathy card for a dear friend of mine who has recently lost her 'Knight in Shining Armor'. With such a sad time, I hope this will lift her spirits a little.

 I have used the 'Time of Year' Hostess stampset as the main sentiment, and the flower and leaves are from the 'Botanical Blooms Photopolymer stampset' & coordinating 'Botanical Builder Framelits Dies'.


I have embossed the sentiment; using 'Versamark Ink' onto the stamp, then stamping onto the 'Flirty Flamingo' inkpad and stamping straight onto the 'Whisper White' cardstock. I covered the sentiment with Clear Stampin' Emboss Powder and used the Heat Tool. The sentiment comes alive.

A closeup of the arrangement; all images were die cut in 'Whisper White' cardstock. The flower is mounted onto another flower from 'Flirty Flamingo' cardstock and the leaves onto 'Pear Pizzazz' cardstock. I then daubed around the edges to give a little bit of depth to the outlines. And some daubing of 'Daffodil Delight' in the centre of the flower.

And then I made these...

Originally I wanted to use the 'Fruit Stand DSP' because it contains all 3 colours of the Challenge. I wanted to make some tags using the waterwash dotty paper and using the 2 different styles from the 'Tags & Labels Framelits Dies', these little darlings turned out better than I imagined!

I love the flower reinforcement ring! Something that just came to me just before I added the 'Baker's Twine' to the tag. And the sweet little flower and leaves made from the 'Tree Builder Punch'.

And the 'Daffodil Delight' version. So delightful!
