Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase : Merry Merlot

 

Welcome to another week of the Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase where this week our feature colour is Merry Merlot which strangely enough is from the Neutrals colour group. I automatically thought of Christmas cards when I started thinking about this weeks cards, which is probably a good thing as I still need to make a few more for this year. This week I have 2 cards to share with you.


 For my first card I chosen to CASE the card on page 40 of the August to December mini. I have teamed the Merry Merlot with Mossy Meadow and Sahara Sand. I had a lot of fun using my Stamparatus to create this card and ended up with very inky fingers, but I could not have done it without the Stamparatus. The white blossom on the wreath has been heat embossed to add some texture and I've added a couple of Beaded Pearls for some enhancement. I think they tie in beautifully don't you?


For my second card I have chosen to use a technique that seems to be quite popular at the moment and one that I have been wanting to give a go.


It's actually really quite simple once you find out how it is done. Just using 3 circle dies which increase in size. All in all it's a quick effective card to put together when time is short. Once again I have teamed Merry Merlot with Mossy Meadow and Sahara Sand.
