In the UK, it is traditionally on 'firework night' that the 'Gunpowder plot' of 1605 is commemorated. It was then that Guy Fawkes was arrested for laying explosives under the House of Lords.
Our first week of the month is another Colour challenge and redolent of bonfire flames we have chosen
Red and Orange
I made two different cards for this challenge. I actually like red and orange together, but I seemed to have a bit of trouble combining the two this week.
I'm not sure what I'll use this card for...I guess it could be a sympathy card, thinking of you, or just a note card. Leaves are Flourishes stamps. I stamped the image on white card stock, then colored with orange Copics and cut out each leaf. Leaves are popped dotted on a white textured card stock that I also pop dotted on the red background. The sentiment is also from Flourishes. BTW, stamping on textured card stock is much more difficult than I thought it would be!
Since I'm in need of quite a few more Christmas cards, I wanted to try to make a Christmas themed one using these colors. Here's what I came up with...
The big flourish is from Papertrey Ink. I used a textured white card base. I stamped the large flourish in SU Pumpkin Pie and then highlighted it with some crystal stickles. The word Peace was cut from red textured card stock using a PTI die and then pop dotted over the orange flourish. Here's a close up so you can see the dimension on the card. I couldn't get the glitter to show up on the flourish...but it's really pretty in real life!
I'm not too sure how I like this card...maybe it'll grow on me after I stare at it for a while! LOL!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I truly appreciate each and every comment! Until next time...
