Seize the Birthday - Another Floral Multiple


Once again, I spent some time making more than one card with a stamp set - this time Artful Flowers from Simon Says Stamp. I enjoyed exploring different-but-same colour combinations - lots of pinks, corals, oranges and yellows - as well as different methods for shading the petals.


I was surprised to find that I think I prefer the softer colours (I know they're still bright!).

I'm linking up to Seize the Birthday's Anything Goes with Optional Bold and Bright theme.  Also both for Day 21 of #thedailymarker30day colouring challenge (via Instagram) and for Simon's Flickr Challenge (sssflickrchallenge#50).

I love this set! It's one of my favorite florals ever. Both of your cards are scrumptious, but I'll admit I have a penchant for shaker cards. I love the colors on both; brighter and lighter, and the centers of the flowers on the shaker have a little extra pop. Great sentiments too. And your coloring....stunning!!! Gorgeous cards, my friend. Bev

These are both gorgeous but there's definitely something really lovely about the soft clouts on the second card.

What a couple great cards! I love the bright colors, and that you made two different cards with the same set!

I'm all for bright colours too, but I think I'm with you, the slightly muted ones are even more awesome than the full-on brights!
