Early Espresso Inspired Thoughts


Welcome to week 16 of the Art With Heart Colour Creations blog hop for 2021. This week's feature colour is Early Espresso which is from the Neutrals colour group. Early Espresso is a dark brown colour. 

A few weeks ago I experimented with Stampin Blends and Isopropyl Alcohol and I decided to use this technique again this week. The colours that I have used on the Vellum are Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Blackberry Bliss, working from the lightest colour to the darkest. Once dry I then sprayed the Vellum with the Isopropyl Alcohol and let the colours blend together and then dry. Giving the end result which reminds me very much of a bushfire scene very similar to what we experienced in Gippsland in December 2019.

I have then used the Inspired Canopy dies to cut the rolling hills and the trees in Early Espresso. I have actually separated the trees into 2 groups and added a couple of birds die cut with Be Dazzling Specialty Paper. 

The sentiment is from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set and has been die cut using the corresponding die. I have also added some Linen Thread and a couple of Brushed Metallic Dots.

Next in tonight's blog hop is the lovely Sharon Davern. I look forward to seeing what lovely creation they share with us tonight. I wonder if it will be one of her fabulous fancy fold cards that she is so good at.

If the "next" button link is not working or you would like to see a full list of participants then go to Catherine Proctor's blog where you can see a full list of tonight's participants. 

Remember to come back again next week when our feature colour will be Flirty Flamingo one of the Brights colours..
