It sure has been hot here in Auckland – doesn’t help when the air con at work isn’t working!
Today’s post has two more projects using the Petal Passion DSP that I shared in my last post except these ones include a bit more colour thanks to our new Stampin’ Blends.
The Petal Passion DSP can be used as is (Black and White) or you can colour in the images using your favourite colouring in technique. I’ve chosen to use the Stampin’ Blends and Watercolour Pencils for this first card.
The images on the DSP already have some shading which helps with colouring in. Once I’d coloured in the images I felt it still needed more so in came the Watercolour Pencils.
At the time of making the card I didn’t have the coordinating Thinlits Dies so I used the banner die from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits. The sentiment is stamped in Rich Razzleberry. The colours used for the flowers/leaves are – Cherry Cobbler, Night of Navy, Old Olive, Pink Pirouette and Calypso Coral. The background is coloured in using the Pacific Point Watercolour pencil then I applied a Blender Pen over it.
For the second card I left the background white so that the coloured images stand out more.
The Stampin’ Blends come in 12 colours – a light and dark shade of each colour. For this card I only used the light shades – Night of Navy, Old Olive, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay and Cherry Cobbler. I love these new Petal Passion metal flower embellishments – I just adhered it with a Glue Dot – and with the pearl already added they look great on your projects.
There’s lots of different products available within this suite so check out pages 22 and 23 of the Occasions Catalogue.
My next installment in the Petal Passion showcase will be a couple of 3D items using DSP and stamps.

Well now that it’s cooled down a bit I think I’ll go for a walk in the park 🙂
