Double D Challenge

Hello there ...
 
 
The new challenge at Double D Challenges starts today and it's Diane's team who are hosting with this lovely tile board
 

 
The theme is June Wedding, though your card does not have to be a wedding card but we are asking that you use the colours - Blues and Coral/Peach
 
I made 2 cards...
 
 The first card I did I used Abandoned Coral distress ink but somehow it translates on my photos as pink
 

I used an image I cut on my cameo as a stencil and added the die cut birdhouse together with a coral flower but because it didn't look coral coloured I decided to make another card using peach colours this time


I made a little envelope and stamped flowers from this set

 

as well as a few roses from another Clearly Besotted set and after colouring them with Copics I cut them up so I could form a little bouquet


They're quite easy to fussy cut and you get more out of your stamps this way

Head on over to the Double D Blog to see what the rest of our team are sharing - I hope you'll be inspired to play along

Enjoy your day and thanks so much for your visit

~ Ros ~

These are both breathtaking, Ros! I am especially in love with your envelope bouquet! We get so conditioned to using our dies now that we forget we can fussy-cut! You have inspired me!! Hugs, Darnell

Both of these cards are so pretty! Funny how that ink looks pink, but the little flower looks coral. That's such a cute stencil you created. Then, of course, you made a gorgeous card #2 with the fabulous flowers and darling envelope. Love the inside of the envelope, as well, and all the vellum. Vellum gives everything such a dreamy and soft quality. Nice job with these colors, Ros!

Mac Mable said...

Such beautiful cards. Love the idea of using different flowers and cutting them to make the full bouquet with the envelope card, absolutely stunning x

Judith said...

Your cards are stunning! Love love love!!!

Marina said...

This is a lovely colour palette and both cards are lovely . I do think the second is particularly stunning with the flowers against the navy.

Sue Lelli said...

LOVE them both! So different and so Pretty!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Beautiful cards, I love those stunning bloom!

Tracy said...

Ros!!! I'm drooling here! Your ink blending is flawless on the first card and that envelope and flower cluster on the second is to die for. Let me know what the envelope die is. Hugs!

Barbara said...

Such stunning cards, Ros! I just love how the flowers seem to explode out of the second card.

Diane said...

Both cards are gorgeous! I always love, love your designs and you nailed the colors perfectly!!
