Art with Heart Colour Creations Blog Hop: Rich Razzleberry
March 24, 2021
I'm excited to have had some time on the weekend to create a card for our Art with Heart Stampin' Up! team's Colour Creations weekly blog hop. This week's colour is Rich Razzleberry, one of my favourite colours for many years. It's a beautiful deep purple pink colour, and a member of our Regals collection.
My card is a watercolour scene. I haven't played with the lovely Grace's Garden stamp set for so long, and Rich Razzleberry made me think of deep pink/purple Hollyhock flowers, so that's what I went with. My scene is made on watercolour paper, with a Crumb Cake mat, and adhered with Dimensionals onto a Rich Razzleberry card base. The card base has also been embossed with the Subtle 3D embossing folder.
I have used Rich Razzleberry, Gorgeous Grape and Bumblebee for my flower colours and Garden Green for the foliage. The gate is a combination of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, the cat is watercoloured in Gray Granite and the bird is Early Espresso with a teeny bit of diluted Real Red on the tummy. For the foreground, I have used a watercolor wash of Sahara Sand and for the sky I have used my blending brushes and Pool Party for a very light sky effect.
To finish off my card, I have added some Linen Thread, and stamped the 'Hello' sentiment from Graces Garden stamp set, in Early Espresso. I also added a metallic heart brad that has been sitting in my scrapbooking stash for many many years.
Here's a closer look at the goregous Graces Garden stamp set from the 2020 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. I love how you can use the images either individually or to make your own garden scene.

The Rich Razzleberry card base is a lovely bold choice as a backdrop for this sweet scene, Claire. Beautiful use of colour. The heart brad on the gate is the perfect finishing touch.

Your card is stunning Claire. I so admire crafters who watercolour with such expertise. The RR card base is perfect for your gorgeous scene.

What a sweet card, Claire, your watercolouring is just beautiful. I love this stamp set and I'm a little sad it is retiring.
