Yesterday the 'Home accents' cricut cartridge turned up :) So last night i decided to have a play!
I soooo love the butterfly cut off this cart :)...i also used one of the flourish cuts too.
Once again i used the viney flower type cut from the 'storybook' cart
I've been after the white prima hydrangeas for a while now, and a few days ago they came:)
Why did i want the white hydrangeas???....so i could colour them myself to co-ordinate with my colour theme. A few times i have coloured white silk flowers with pro markers...however i didnt want 'that' sort of look for this card...so instead i decided to have a go at colouring the prima hydranges with chalks...yes chalks.!! The chalks i used are pearlescant...and are a soft type of chalk.
The paper i used is one of my own designs from the 'Its just so distressing ' paper pack, i used a lovely green shade. All the cuts on the cricut were done on white card,then i simply inked them all up. I also inked the edges of the paper in the same colour.
For the primas i used a lovely green chalk for the whole flower,then i went around the edges with a bronze/brown colour chalk.
I think the primas coloured with chalks is 'amazing'...i love it..lol
this is gonna be my new 'thing' :)
I'm loving this flowery cut and the butterfly...i cant wait to do some LO's and some mini books ect using these cuts...just need to find the time now.
My top tip!
Instead of paying out for all different coloured flowers...buy white and colour them yourself,so as they co-ordinate perfectly.
