Week 43 - Terracotta Tile Colour Creations Showcase


Hello Everyone and welcome to week 43 of the colour creations showcase.  As you may have noticed we have jumped a few colours and will be going back to them from next week. This is because by the time we would have reached Terracotta Tile this colour would have retired as this is one of the 2019-2021 incolors.
It's not one of my favourite colours as I'm not a brown or rust colour person, but it sits well in the colour pallet. 
I decided I wanted to make a card outside of my comfort zone using only card and circles. This is what I came up with.

 I started with a white card base and added a Terracotta Tile layer I then die cut out 3 circles from the white layer and then 4 circles out of Terracotta Tile, I then cut the circles again leaving only small frame pieces. I glues the circles in an abstract fashion and then glue them to the white layer. As they looked a bit lost on there I used my Terracotta Tile ink pad and a dauber around the edges of the white layer and then coloured in the circles using Seaside Spray and Rococo Rose Blends in the light only.
I stamped my happy birthday and punched it out then punched out another in Terracotta Tile and layered behind it I then placed my white layer onto the card front using dimensionals. I think this will make a really lovely male card.

 My insert was layers of Terracotta Tile and then White I sued the centres of the circles to add some interest to the inside along with my sentiment and once again I used my dauber. Both the inside and front sentiments are from the Timeless Tulips set. I'm happy to say that this stamp set and the punch are carrying over into the New Annual catalogue that will go live on the 4th May 2021. Just remember that the Terracotta Tile colour will not be in the New Annual Catalogue.

  1. Di what a great masculine card this is! Thank you for sharing your Terracotta Tile inspiration!

  2. The "rings" on the front of your card complement the solid circles really well, Di. The softer colours you've added help tone down the boldness of the Terracotta Tile. Nicely done!

  3. What an interesting card you've created with the circles. Those sentiments are really thoughtful, I hadn't noticed them before.

  4. Love how you interlocked the circles to add depth to the card Di and adding the soft colours in between. Very nice!

  5. A wonderful masculine card, Di. Those circles are very cool and the colouring behind each section looks fabulous!

  6. Your card is so eye-catching! The circles look great, and I love how you've coloured parts of them. Fab card!

  7. An interesting design that works really well Diane. I like the colour combination with Terracotta Tile.
