Dainty Delight for AYSI 299

Welcome to the latest challenge at As You See It. It's time again for the Recipe Challenge: what can you cook up using all five of our mystery ingredients?

So? What to do with a frame, a bow, a die cut, flowers and shades of blue? Well, it was time to play with some new things and try them out with some older things.  Can you see what's new and what was already in the stash?

I started by watercolouring some Fluid100 paper with Azure Afternoon, Boho Blue and Misty Moonlight. (three new colours right there! )From that, I cut some flowers using the Dainty Delight dies (already in the stash). The stems and leaves were cut from Night of Navy. That ticked off three of the ingredients: shades of blue, flowers and die cut,

The frame was cut using the two largest squares in Stylish Shapes (a staple ingredient in my craft room 😀). So, another die cut. The sentiment and the label are from Timeless Arrangements, a new but not yet explored, new bundle. It's stamped in Azure Afternoon.

I added the double bow to accentuate the sentiment. The card front is embossed using a new folder - Exposed Brick 3D. So now, with the frame and the bow, all ingredients have been used.

We'd love to see what you can come up with using these five items. Pop over to the As You See It page to see what the rest of the team have done and to link up your own entry.

  1. Love this so much, Jan! Now I have to play with coloring these beautiful dies, too - this is just stunning! Love that emboss, too! Perfect!

  2. This is such a beautiful card, Jan, and as the first one posted, it really set the bar high! You nailed this challenge!

  3. A gorgeous card, Jan! Those beautiful blues just pop against the white background. Love all the texture, the fine splatters, and the delicate flowers. You nailed this challenge. :)

  4. I clearly need to look at these dies again Jan because this is the second time you've used those diecut flowers and I've not recognised them from my stash!! I love the watercolouring, it adds such a beautiful vibrancy to the blooms and that textured background is fabulous. A beautiful card!
