Combining Colors/Shades for Your Blooms

Hello friends!

I have a fun share today. It is about combining colors from different color family for your stamped flowers! BUT first, I like to share the Altenew DT shout out photo. The following cards are my favorite in the last few months.


 I also have a little "testimony" over Altenew Card Blog. You can check out the post HERE


 I always love to try a few new things and there. This was one of the few surprises! I think I will definitely experiment more with petal and leaves with various shades and colors.

I love how the purple peeking out through the pink flowers!

I don't think that there should ever be a rule about using only the same shades of colors for stamp-layering. Flowers and leaves come in all shades and sizes. Why should we limit them in just one color family?


These are the 3 cards I made with the same Build-a-Flower. Do you have a favorite?  Thanks for stopping by!

Virginia, all your cards are wonderful. It's difficult to choose just one favorite. I also agree not to have rules to limit flower or leaf shades of colors for stamp-layering. You are always an inspiration with all your creativity. said...

Love the centre card and the colours!
You do have a talent for colours so why
stick to any rules! Don't we often hear
"Anything goes"!

Loved seeing your part of the Altenew post this morning with your pretty cards! Was it hard to choose from your beautiful array of cards? Love all your cards with the bellflower set and esp like the latest one where you mixed up the color families. I need to do more experimenting with colors.
