Flame colours take 2

Another double act today and a variation on yesterday’s post using flame colours. Once again I will be sharing both of these over at Sunday Stampers for this week’s challenge.


Once again I’ve used distress inks for the background – Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries. I used the script stamp and Rusty Hinge to add some detail to the background.



The butterfly (Swallowtail from Stampin’ Up!) and the flowery branches were stamped in black Archival.


And yes, they’re back, I’ve used one of my favourite Darkroom Door String Inspiration stamps!


The next card is a little stamped composition:


I’ve used the same inks as before but substituted Festive Berries for Shabby Shutters. The toadstools, house and leaves are all Dylusions. I’ve paper pieced the house and leaves and coloured them, and the caps of the toadstools, with Promarkers.

The coils and daisies are Stampotique stamps and the grass is from a Hero Arts clear set. White gel pen was used to colour in the daisies and the toadstools’ spots.


The sentiment…well, what can I say – but it has been a while! As well as sharing this particular card over at Sunday Stampers I am also linking it up, right at the wire, for the That’s Crafty! “You spin me round” challenge and at Craft Hoarders Anonymous for challenge #5 which is to use a stamp.

  1. STUNNING!!! That butterfly is gorgeousness… I love these nearly as much as I loved nomming those marshmallow crispies! Thanks for joining in with the Sunday Stamper x

  2. Two outstanding cards. The little toadstools are gorgeous and I love the paper piecing and white highlighting.

    What can I say about the swallowtail? It is impossible to make a bad card with it but this is special – you really have nailed the gradual cololur changes.

  3. I love both of these cards! Your color blending is awesome, and the colors themselves are so vibrant. Love your compositions, too. A wonderful set of cards!

    • Thanks Roberta – as you know I can’t help myself when it comes to playing with colour. Am on a mission to have the full set of distress inks so I can then start collecting the paints!!!

I really appreciate it when people take time to leave a comment, thank you so much for doing so :)
