Week 23 - Colour Creations Showcase - Magenta Madness

 Week 23 Magenta Madness

Hello everyone, and welcome to week 23 of the Colour Creations Showcase. This week our colour is Magenta Madness this is one of the 2020-2022 in colors and I love how bright it is.
I did find it hard to make a card with this colour all the same as I wanted to make something elegant and sassy. So I started with a Pretty Peacock card base and then added a Gold Foil Layer before adding another Pretty Peacock layer, I then added a Forever Gold Laser-cut layer. After all the layers I stamped the flower from the Floral Essence Stamp Set onto Magenta Madness card stock using matching ink for the tone on tone look. I then stamped the same image onto some Vellum in the magenta madness ink as well. I then punched out the flowers and layered them together adding a dimensional to the back to attach it to the card front. I also stamped 2 leaves from the Celebrate Sunflowers in Garden Green and vellum and attached these also. I then cut out some of the other leave sprigs from the sunflower set and die cut them out in Silver Foil. I then stamped Happy Birthday onto some whisper white card and layered with magenta madness and add 2 small flowers Arrange a Wreath die set.
For my insert I Just added Best Wishes and bow from the Arrange a Wreath set as well, I then stamped a small piece of Magenta Madness card with the same flower in matching ink. Sweet and simple.All the items used in this project can be found in the 2020-2021 Stampin' Up!
