CI#33 Rustic Honey Bouquet

Such gorgeous colours- and while the inspiration picture is quite rustic I have given it a slightly more modern feel- thanks to one of my new favourite bundles- the Varied Vases designed by Mary Fish. Super cute.

I have to say at the outset that the inspiration for this card came from an image on a blog hop somewhere. You can see the video by Aude Barbara here - it's in French but you can easily follow along. 
I generally create from a blank start but sometime the business of life takes over and we all need a little CASeing every now and then to achieve our deadlines ( and keep our sanity!). Life seems to have been busier than usual lately here, so hope you'll forgive me for caseing the technique but the layout is definitely "me".

Auda uses only a blender pen and Watercolour Paper. My pen must be a bit dry because I was unable to get the same coverage using just the ink from the stamped image. I used the blender pen but also used some additional ink smooshed onto a clear block as my palette.
I love the depth you can achieve with the blender pen and the watercolour paper gives a nicer finish than regular card or shimmer for this project.

My first version below used vases in different colours but I prefer the card above with them all the same.

I was enjoying the process so I also created a set using the coming brand new In Colours. I think I'm in love with Lovely Lipstick!

Next on the hop this week is Monique

I hope you have a creative week and remember,
Don't forget we'd love to see what you create using the same colours . You can share your projects on our Facebook page.

"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"
cheers, Liz


  1. WOW! Your cards are awesome! I love this colouring technique - it will have to go on the Must Do list (and not the list that says maybe one day.....!). The vases look spectacular done this way. Great cards Liz, and love all the colour variations, but my favourite is the first one!!

    1. thanks Julia, it's a slightly addictive technique!

  2. Liz these are all works of art. Supurbly coloured. Love all the different colour versions. X

  3. always <3 I knew as soon as I saw the vases at OnStage that these would become an ESSENTIAL in your craft room... Love the In Colors you have used for the vases and leaves <3
    Cheers Shaz

  4. Goodness, I adored the first one, scrolled and find more deliciousness! Love the combinations x

  5. Love this look and layout!

  6. Casing a technique is a great way to take pressure off Liz, sometimes we all need that little kickstart. It's definitely a Liz creation though and so pretty in the various colour ways. xx
