AWHT Colour Creations #16 Crushed Curry

Crushed Curry with Honeybee Home

Hello. Welcome to Valley Inspirations with Andrea and the Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop. We are working though the Stampin' Up! colours in alphabetical order. 



This week’s Blog Hop is focussing on a deep yellow called Crushed Curry. Crushed Curry is part of the Regals Colour Family and is a muted colour. This colour is lovely for flowers, honey bees, sunsets plus so much more. It is delightful with greys, greens  and can complement purples (being on the opposite side of the colour wheel). It can harmonise with Gold. 


Crushed Curry is produced in Stampin' Up!'s card-stock, both A4 & 12"x12"Classic Stampin' inks (ink pads re-inkers); Stampin' Write Markers; Water-colour Pencils; Regals Designer Series Paper as well as He's the Man, Tea Boutique, Butterfly Kisses, Rustic Harvest, Rings of Love and Celebrate Everything DSPs; plus The Best Remedy Kit, Fun Flowers Resin Shapes; and Tea Boutique Cards & Envelopes. 

Here is my card to hero Crushed Curry:

Crushed Curry led me to think of sunshine, sunflowers, daisies, bees and honey etc, etc. I had a number of ideas but eventually settled on honey bees and a background watercolour wash with Hive 3D embossing and hexagon die cuts.

I started by water-colouring a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with Crushed Curry Classic ink using a wide-brushed Water Painter. The water-coloured panel was embossed with the Hive 3D Embossing Folder. It is a beautiful EF and can be used showing either side of the embossed panel. The coloured embossed panel was mounted onto a slightly larger piece of Crushed Curry Card-stock before being affixed to a Basic White card base.

Hexagon's were cut from Basic White card-stock using the Beautiful Shapes dies. Images from the Honeybee Home stamp set were partially stamped onto the white hexagons, using the marker to stamp technique. Gorgeous Grape & Old Olive Stampin' Write markers were used. Momento Tuxedo Black ink was used to stamp the bees. The images were all coloured using pencils from both Watercolor Pencil sets, ie Crushed Curry, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Gorgeous Grape, Rich Razzelberry, Basic Black and White. They are lovely pencils to use either just by themselves (as done here) or together with a Blender Pen or Water Painter.

A sentiment from the same stamp set was stamped onto Crushed Curry card-stock using Versamark ink and heat embossed with White Emboss Powder and a Heat Tool. A bow of White Crinkled Seam Binding and some gold Simply Elegant Trim was tucked under the fussy cut sentiment and some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels were sprinkled around to add a little sparkle.

A Basic White card inner was mounted onto a slightly larger piece of Crushed Curry card-stock with a thin left over strip of the embossed water-coloured paper added to the right side. An extra bee also was added. A Basic White C6 Envelope was stamped with the little floral stamp in Crushed Curry ink. (Please excuse the different background for the photo above. It was starting to rain so I dashed inside forgetting that I had missed taking a photo of the card inner.)

  1. Such a delightful card, Andrea. It makes me think of an English garden and the touches of lavender/purple are simply perfect with this sunny golden yellow. I feel happy, calm and relaxed just looking at this card.

  2. Oh, I completely forgot about the Hive folder! It is a fabulous choice for pairing with Crushed Curry. I adore the hints of flowers in the hexagon shapes.

  3. You've combined stamps, dies, embossing, and colours so beautifully on your card, Andrea. Purple is a great complement to yellow, and I love the tones you've used. The Hive background is really lovely.

  4. I love this Andrea, so pretty and with such well considered elements. I love how you chose to use purple for the flowers in complete contrast to Crushed Curry. Great choices!

  5. Andrea your scene is so pretty and Crushed Curry is paired nicely with the purple flowers and green stems. I love how the bees hover over the die cut hexagons. Lovely card!

  6. As always you have created a beautiful background Andrea and the Hive folder is a fabulous choice. The purple compliments the Crushed Curry beautifully. Love the addition of those bees as well.

  7. Your soft watercolour wash is beautiful, Andrea and the use of the Hive 3D folder is perfect. Your little bees popped around your floral stamped hexagons, are divine. You have certainly made Crushed Curry look appealing!!

  8. I do like the way watercolouring reduces the intensity of Crushed Curry. The stamped images on hexagons is a novel idea.

  9. Honey bees, hives and spring flowers are the perfect way to showcase CC Andrea. An absolutely stunning card packed with interest and texture.
