Today I'm playing along with the Seven Hills Challenge,
which gives you the option of 3 different colour palettes.
No being great at 'floral' cards these roses are a revelation to me.
I still haven't got them exactly right, but I'm having so much fun with them.
I came across a couple of great tips for using them.
1. Don't worry if - like me - you have a limited ink stash.
You can use 1 ink pad to create at least 2 shades.
Ink up your rose piece and stamp.
Then ink up again, stamp on scrap and then on your rose.
Voila - 2 shades!
( You all knew this already didn't you? :-) )
2. The roses and leaves can be tricky to line up,
but if you start with the darkest colour first it makes it a little easier.
I've used the colour palette below for my card.
Matching up as best I can with the inks I have.
Blue for the roses, green for the leaves and the bottom grey/vanilla colour
as little sprinkled dots.
