CI#79 Rich and Regal colours for another Jar of Flowers and an exciting postage discovery.

This week we have a really rich colour palette which did challenge me! I don't usually use such strong colours together so to tone it down I painted a piece of watercolour paper with the Navy, Blackberry and Merlot and used the framelits to cut out several leaves using the gorgeous Forever Fern and Forever Flourishing framelits.  I punched out a second jar then held it in the punch to make it shorter. This was then painted and sponged to give some depth.

I just love the shaker filled with sparkly bits!

I was super excited to discover that the card will fit inside our Acetate Boxes (p152 of the New Catalogue), which means that you can post your gorgeous shaker card. In Australia the box is classed as a medium letter and will require 2 postage stamps instead of 1. It's really that easy! So for $1.22 for the box and $2.20 for postage it's not expensive to post something really special.

Here's what's left of my watercolour piece -I even have few bits to make another.

Don't forget to check out the other creations this week using the colour palette- and please share your creations with us on the Facebook page.

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"
