Week 18 Art With Heart Colour Creations Weekly Showcase Gorgeous Grape

Hello and welcome to Week 18 with the Art With Heart Colour Creations Weekly Showcase. Which the lovely Catherine Proctor is running our weekly blog and with a selection of other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from the Art With Heart Team. 

This week we are featuring Gorgeous Grape in our projects and it's such a gorgeous colour! Gorgeous Grape is part of the Brights Collection and comes in a range of Stampin' Up! products such as the Classic Stampin' Pad, Cardstock, DSP and more. 

For my project I've used the Forever Fern Bundle, Gold Foil and the Gold Hoop Embellishment. They all add an interesting look to the card. 

The other main feature is the boldness of the water colour stripes using Gorgeous Grape Ink, the large flat brush and Shimmery White Cardstock. It's all free hand and using Grid Paper as a guide for straight lines. I've made some of the lines a littler softer shade of Gorgeous Grape.

I've used the combination of Gorgeous Grape and Just Jade Ink for the stamped images from the Forever Fern Stamp Set. The images are then die cut out using the Forever Flourishing Dies.

The Gold Foil is perfect little addition to the arrangement to the Gold Hoop and foliage. I just love all of the tiny little details this bundle can give you. 

The layers of Cardstock are Gorgeous Grape for the card base and a panel in Gold Foil. I like to die cut out some of the images from the Gold Foil panel, before layering the Shimmery White Cardstock on top.

The sentiment is from the Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp Set and inked up in Gorgeous Grape onto a scrap piece of Whisper White. The finale touch, I added Rich Razzleberry Artistry Blooms Sequins to my project.

Thank you for visiting my blog with the Colour Creations Weekly Showcase and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's projects.
