Welcome to another week of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase where this week our feature colour is Gorgeous Grape, a lovely bold purple colour. This week I have chosen to team it with Whisper White and Old Olive.
When I first started thinking about Gorgeous Grape the first type of flowers I thought of were Iris's. They would hands down be one of my favourite flowers. So I thought it was time to ink up the Inspiring Iris stamp set for the first time. I must say one of the advantages of partaking in these blog hops is that it gives you a reason to challenge yourself and use a stamp set that hasn't seen any ink yet! Inspiring Iris is a 2 step stamp set, where you have one stamp for the outline, which in my case I used Black Memento ink for, and a second stamp for the fill of the stamp, which in my case I used Gorgeous Grape for the flowers and Old Olive for the stems and leaves. When looking for some ribbon to add i noticed that the Tricolour ribbon worked beautifully. For the bling I have added some Basic Rhinestone jewels which I have coloured using Stampin Blends.
For my second card I have used the Banner Blooms die with some of the gorgeous Rainbow Glimmer Paper.
It's actually a quick simple card to make as the Rainbow Glimmer Paper does all the work. Just die cut, stamp the sentiment, add a bow and some bling with the Artistry Blooms Sequins, and it's done!
