A Floral Hello

Hi everyone, happy Thursday! I'm Taheerah and those of you who are regulars to the blog might recognise that I'm a new face here! I'm delighted to be joining the Seven Hills Crafts DT as the newest of Tara's awesome team!

So as I'm new, I thought I'd say hello! And what better way for a cardmaker to do that than with a 'Hello' card?

I loved pulling out the Concord & 9th Hello Lovely set for this quick and easy card! That massive floral spray really speaks for itself!

We always seem to want to colour our flowers (who can blame us when nature gives us so much inspiration?!) - but for those who are intimidated by colouring, I wanted to show you how you can create a stunning effect by colouring the background instead! That's precisely what I did, with some watercolouring!

I heat embossed the 'Hello' sentiment with gold embossing powder. A little splattered gold mist to finish things off nicely, don't you think? The end result almost looks like marble!

I hope you have a great day! I would love to get to know you all a bit better - why not say 'hello' back in the comments? :) Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Hello Taheerah, I like your idea of not colouring the flowers but the background. It looks very elegant and invites to have a closer look.
