Virginia’s View Challenge – All Things Colored

Hello crafty friends!
I am so delighted (and excited!) to be a guest designer on Virginia’s View challenge blog today, with Kathy Racoosin. I am so honoured to be there with Kathy! I can’t believe it’s real!

Virginia’s View is definitely one of the most famous challenges, and I know that there are tons of sweet fans out there (and of course, I am one of them).

I hope you enjoy my post today. Have a good read!
VirginiaViewBannerToday is all about COLOUR! I believe that flowers are the best way to show all the colours of the rainbow. In additions, the layered petals of flowers are perfect for expressing different colours on one spot.

YoonsunHur-VirginiaView-ATo create the card, I 1) Stamped layered flowers and leaves on watercolour paper panel using several colours of Distress inks (Red flowers: Festive Berries, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany / Pink flowers: Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry / Yellow flowers: Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade / Leaves: Crushed Olive, Mowed Lawn). 2) Stamped the sentiment at the centre of that using VersaMark embossing ink, gold heat embossed. 3) Coloured loosely around the flowers with Broken China Distress ink using waterbrush. 4) Spritzed with a Perfect Pearls Mist over the flowers. 5) Tied the bottom of the stamped panel using natural twine. 6) Mounted the panel on white card base using double-sided tape and then embellished with a few PPP clear sequins.

YoonsunHur-VirginiaView-BHow did I make my second card? Well, it was no different to the way I made it the first card. But this time, I used cool colours instead of warm colours. I stamped the first layer of these blue flowers with SSS Lake shores hybrid ink, second layer with Audrey Blue dye ink and then the last layer with Blue Jay hybrid ink. For the leaves, I stamped the first layer with SSS Jellybean, second layer with Scuba and the last layer with Blue Jay hybrid inks.

  1. Oh what beautiful cards Yoonsun. Love the layered flowers and the wonderful; background colouring. The twine is a beautiful finish without distracting the eye from the flowers.
