AWHT Colour Creations #30 Mossy Meadow

Mossy Meadow with Blessings of Home

Hello. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the first Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop for 2022. I hope you have had a great Christmas and New Year and are ready to make the most of 2022. 

This week’s Blog Hop is focussing on a deep muted olive green called Mossy Meadow. Mossy Meadow is part of the Neutrals Colour Family and is a delightful versatile green. This green which works beautifully with various colours including Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia and So  Saffron.

Mossy Meadow is produced in Stampin' Up!'s card-stock, both A4 & 12"x12"Classic Stampin' inks (ink pads re-inkers); Stampin' Write Markers; Stampin' Blends, Soft Pastels Assortment and the 2020-2022 Neutrals Designer Series Papers as well as Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper & For the Guys Kit. The card below has used Mossy Meadow card-stock, Classic Stampin' ink, Stampin' Blends and a design of the Beauty of the Earth DSP that showcases MM plus a range of other non-MM bits and pieces.

Here is my card showcasing Mossy Meadow:

For the layout I decided to use the current Global Design Project Challenge which is to CASE the designer, ie Connie Collins. Here is her card.

Rather than cut strips for the background, I decided to paint water-colour stripes using Mossy Meadow Classic ink and the thick Water Painter on Shimmery White card-stock. Once dry the striped piece was passed through the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder

The background was cut from a piece Beauty of the Earth DSP that looked like a darker wash a Mossy Meadow. While you can't see the design, various tones of the green can be seen around the border. The DSP was adhered directly to a Mossy Meadow card-stock card base.

The smaller floral spray from the Blessings of Home stamp set was stamped a few times in Momento Black ink onto Basic White card-stock. The images were coloured with Stampin' Blends, ie Mossy Meadow, Soft Sea Foam, Highland Heather, Fresh Freesia and So Saffron Stampin' Blends combos. The floral sprays were fussy cut with my Snips and flowers and some leaves were individually cut out.

The white side of a doily from the Heart & Home Doilies pack was layered onto the water-coloured stripes. The coloured floral spray and extra flowers/leaves were arranged over the doily and adhered with either Tombow Multipurpose Glue or Dimensionals. A sentiment from the Blessings of Home stamp set was stamped in Momento ink onto Basic White card-stock. The lines of the sentiment were cut apart and only the first two lines were added to the card front with Dimensionals.This card front was added to the card base with Dimensionals.

Some linen thread was coloured with the Dark Mossy Meadow Blend. Some of the thread had been wrapped around the card front a couple of times over the doily and before the flowers were arranged, however, the sentiment and flowers cover all but the bow, so it would have been sufficient to just add the bow under the sentiment with a Glue Dot. The final touch was the addition of some delightful Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels. They are in the new Jan-June Mini Catalogue and are soooo beautiful.

The small flower spray was stamped on a piece of Basic White card-stock with Momento ink and a thin off-cut strip of the water-coloured stripes was added to one side of the card inner. A C6 Basic White envelope was also stamped with the floral spray in Momento ink. I do like to simply decorate both the card inner and the envelope to coordinate with the card front design.

I have had a range of things happen of late so wasn't sure if I would have a chance to create for this Blog Hop, but ... I didn't want to miss it.  I really appreciated the inspiration of the Global Design Project Challenge #324. 

Thank you so much for dropping by. I am so delighted that you spent time with me.

  1. Andrea your background wash in Mossy Meadow complements the focal floral arrangement brilliantly. Love the layering over the new doilies and the arrangement of the stamped sentiment text.

  2. What a spectacular layout and outstanding colour choice for your delightful spray of flowers. A great idea to watercolour those big stripes in the background and really draw the eye to the focal image.

  3. The purple flowers are a beautiful complement to the rich dark green that is Mossy Meadow, Andrea. I love the wide watercoloured stripes, and the fact that you embossed the Shimmery White card stock after watercolouring it; such a beautiful effect. Great idea to custom-colour the Linen Thread! Lovely card. x

  4. Beautiful card Andrea, love the stripes, so fresh in water colour. Now make sure you load it to the Global Design Project.

  5. I love your striped, water coloured background, great idea

  6. A big yes to your luscious water coloured stripes and hand coloured linen thread, Andrea! Those purple flowers just pop against your water coloured background - so stunning.

  7. This is really lovely, Andrea. I like your interpretation of the CASE, using watercolour stripes of Mossy Meadow, and the colouring of the flower images and fussy cutting is beautiful.
