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! 


  1. Subtle texture from the clear paste and a real wow facotr from the vibrant flower angainst the dark navy.....Wonderufl card x.

  2. Beautiful card, Cara. I love the effect of the embossing on the background. The bright pink flowers really 'pop' against the navy background. xx

  3. The contrast between navy and hot pink creates an impressive look! Love the textured background!

  4. Loving the navy and pink Cara, fabulous card again too.Sorry for the lack of commenting recently also, hugs Viv xx

  5. I love the texture in the background and how those lovely pink flowers just pop off of it, Cara.

  6. Cara, I love the combination of pink and navy blue, I don't see it often but it looks so elegant and beautiful.
    Love the texture of the background, which makes your sweet die cut flowers pop.
