Crimson beauties !

Hi guys, its 7.30am in the uk and its damp and overcast here today ! I felt like creating something Fiery and
dramatic today.....I feel sometimes that we do not use enough COLOUR ! I like subtle colours too but feel
 they are used too often because they are 'SAFE' !!
Anyway i used my beloved Hero arts butterfly stamps, a designer paper from my stash and a spellbinders die cut
'Fancy banner'. The flowers i have made  are punched out and watercoloured (so much nicer to use real water-
colours for flowers......I find that dye based ink, fades rather quickly and you soon loose the impact of colour and then you are back to 'WISHY WASHY PALE' COLOUR again !!
If you are creating a little masterpiece today, be bold and use COLOUR..........Have a lovely day all !!!
I will enter this card into the following challenges....


  1. Beautiful, just beautiful! Bold color suites you!

  2. The butterflies decorate your card beautifully Chris!

  3. Gorgeous card Chris you certainly have created something colourful...


  4. I could not have said it better myself Chris.
    Colour delights the senses, and Red especially so, warm tones are known as high-arousal colours and red in particular, creates the highest arousal threshold in humans, it also commands attention, just like this beautiful card you have created.

  5. Very pretty card, the butterflies are beautiful.
