Crushed Curry Autumn


Welcome to week 14 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2021. This week's feature colour is Crushed Curry which is from the Regals colour group.To me Crushed Curry conjours up imagines of Autumn so I have teamed it with Old Olive and Cajun Craze, which to me are all Autumnal colours.


Still thinking Autumn, for my card this week I decided to visit a technique that I haven't used for many many years but works a treat for Autumn leaves. The Baby Wipe technique.


For this technique all you need to do is drop ink onto a baby wipe at random and then stamp from that. In the case of this card I randomly dropped Old Olive, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry reinkers onto the baby wipe. No special baby, just the Coles homebrand! I then randomly stamped the leaf from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set. There is a matching die to most of the leaves so I then die cut each one. The great thing about this method is all of the different colour layouts that you create and no 2 are the same as you can see. 

For the base of the card I have embossed a piece of white cardstock using the Timeworn Type embossing folder. Which you can see closer in this photo.

 The sentiment has been stamped in Old Olive and is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set. I've added some randomly arranged Linen Thread and a few Brushed Metallic Dots.

I've really enjoyed revisiting this technique and love the different colour combinations it creates.

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Rachel Woollard.I look forward to seeing what lovely creation they have to share with us this week.
