I hope you are all doing well. It mid June which means it is time for The Flower Challenge reminder. This month’s challenge is all about Navy and one other color.

I made two cards different cards both using navy and gold but different techinques.

For my first card I used the Pinkfresh Dainty Blossoms and die. I knew I wanted a navy background so sprayed gold spray on the background. Note – my spray went a little crazy and too much gold came out but I thought I could still work with the background. I started out die cutting the flowers in vellum since I already had gold and navy, I didn’t want to use another color.

I then realized that I wanted to use a gold hello sentiment and thought that die cutting the flowers from the same gold would fill my bouquet.

For my second card, I wanted to use alcohol ink.

I used the Monsoon alcohol ink and blending solution on Yupo paper and started to layer the color. When I was happy with the background, I added a little blending solution and Gilded Alloy to give some gold to the background.

I die cut the Pinkfresh Botanical Branch from white cardstock and add it to the top of my background. I finished the card with a simple sentiment.

  1. Both cards are gorgeous Ericka, the one with the gold accents it truly stunning, love the way your spray bottle “went a little crazy”, LOL!! the speckles look amazing.
    And I love the background on your second card, I love the way the color concentrates in the middle and then, softly fades at the edges.
    Just lovely.
