Colour Your World Blog Hop! Grateful Bunch



 It's time for our Colour Your World Blog Hop again. I'm in love with the colour palette this month.  This just screams spring!

I made two cards this month..just because I was on a roll and because I just loved these colours so much! Both cards use all five colours from this month's palette but in different ways.  One is with ink and the other is with cardstock.

Colour Your World 1B

Start by stamping the sentiment in Versamark and apply Black Embossing Powder and heat set. Then I spritzed a piece of Watercolor Paper with water.  Next I picked up ink from the lids of the Classic Stampin' Pads with my Aqua Painter and applied it to the paper starting in the lower right hand corner.  The colour spreads out when it makes contact with the paper.  I started with Rose Red, then Pink Pirouette, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky and finished with Marina Mist.  I sped up the drying process with my heat tool.

Colour Your World 2

I then took the Gorgeous Grunge ink splat and stamped it in each colour on top of the watercolour areas.  Then I added some butterflies from the Bold Butterfly dies.  Adding some Metallic Gold Thread under each butterfly to add some bling.

Colour Your World Blog Hop 2a

I recently received a really cute card from a friend using this colouring blocking technique and I thought it would work really well with these colours.  Start but cutting 1" strips of each colour and glue to a piece of cardstock for stability.  To give it some texture I ran the entire piece through the Big Shot with the Lovely Lace Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  

Colour Your World 2c

I used the Grateful Bunch and matching Blossom Bunch Punch (remember purchase as a bundle and save 15% but only until May 31st!)  The set and punch will carry forward to the new Annual Catalogue but they will be unbundled and sold individually only.
