The Flower Challenge # 45 - Navy Plus One Colour

It’s the middle of the month (and almost the longest day!) and so it’s time for a reminder about our current challenge over at The Flower Challenge use navy plus one colour.
I was determined to use the same die as I did for my original challenge card this month and so cut it from matt gold mirri card and snipped off one of the flowers.
I spritzed navy Izink dye ink spray through a Finnabair stencil onto A6 white cards. Once dry I die cut circles out of one piece and with foam tape added it over another ink spritzed piece. I added a border in navy fine liner. I cut the Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs die in both an ink spritzed piece of card and the gold and layered them up on the card. I added the flowers and some pale gold gems to finish. Simples!

The Flower Challenge #45 - Navy Plus One Other Colour

Yep, June already! I can’t believe how quickly time is passing even in lockdown. The good thing about working from home is that I’m always in when my crafting goodies arrive. Currently waiting impatiently for my new Speckled Egg inkpads!
Whilst I was waiting I made this card for out new challenge over the The Flower Challenge and this month we want to see you use a limited colour palette of navy and one other colour.
I had a messy afternoon creating some backgrounds using various ink sprays and I used one of them in Pink with a touch of shimmer to die cut this beautiful Studiolight flower die. 
On a piece of navy card I spread some clear texture paste through my Aall and Create Lotza Dotz stencil, then mounted it on a 5x7 card with a pink mat. I found the perfect colour  Studiolight washi tape with the words sending hugs printed on it. I added it on foam tape along with some Lavinia Stamps glitter to the centre of the flowers to finish. Simples!
