A Splash Of Colour

My next DT piece for The Stamp Attic is to use the images above, Bloom Clear from Claudine Hellmuth.  This time around I have created a three fold card using one of the flowers.  I simply cut a piece of 12 x 12 Bazzil card stock in half and scored at 4" and 8" to form my accordion.
My flower, stems and leaves have all been stamped onto the 7 Gypsies Paddington Paper using black Archival Ink. I have used the image on the bottom of the stamp, which could be used for grass as my stems, simply cut up into random pieces.
I have highlighted the centre of the flowers with purple Bazzil card and a small button.  Faux stitching has been added to lift the flowers from the black background.
The flowers and leaves have been raised to give a 3D like appearance.
To complete I have added a Studio 490 Scollop Art Part, which has been stamped with Hero Arts Old French Writing and sponged with DI dusty concord.  I have threaded black ribbon through the holes to add some texture.

I am also entering this piece for The Play Date Cafe challenge which this week is a colour splash; black, white and a splash of lilac/purple.  Our inspiration for this week is the picture below.
I would also like to take this opportunity to let you all know that The Altered Alice monthly challenge has started today with week 1 challenge being CHANGES IN FORM and DRESS FORMS.  The challenge is to create something that features a dress form or something that changes form.  The first set of DT art is fabulous and well worth a visit and the rest of the DT work will appear at weekly intervals throughout the month of February, with mine scheduled for 6th February.  Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

Nice piece of work, Tracy. I like the idea of the folded card and I think you have used the colours in a very nice subtle way.
