Colour Blast by Bee Arty - Guest DT Post

 Hello, my friends!

I'm back with my second Guest DT post for Colour Blast by Bee Arty
If you missed my first Guest DT post, you can find it HERE.

If you're not familiar with Colour Blast by Bee Arty...
it's a fantastic shop located in Australia.
They carry an incredible line of mixed media products,
along with all of our usual addictions:
paper, stamps, dies, stencils, etc.
They also offer a monthly kit subscription,
and these kits are loaded with incredible products!

I've created several projects for my second post.
I just kept playing and having lots of fun. 

I'll have links to all the fabulous products at the end of the post.

First, I made a tag:

For this first tag, I used a paper from the gorgeous Grateful Heart Collection.
I began with a black cardstock tag base,
and then cut the decorative paper to fit.
I fussy cut around the flowers and leaves,
and left them extending past the tag.

I die-cut the lovely butterflies using the Butterfly Effect Die.
I folded the wings up and then adhered them in place.
I added some glitter and bling, and a ribbon.

I also fussy cut some of the other leaves in the design,
and curled them up to add more dimension, as shown below.

Then I made another tag:

Here I used another black cardstock tag base,
and added another paper from the collection.
I first stamped the basket and the flowers onto the tag background.
I also stamped numerous flowers on the background.
I then stamped both the basket and flowers onto watercolour paper.
I coloured them in with watercolours, and fussy cut them out.
I added both elements in place on the tag, using foam tape.
Finally, I added some Stickles to the center of each flower,
and a ribbon at the top of the tag.
Aren't the hydrangea gorgeous?

Then I made a card:

For this card I used a black cardstock card base.
I cut a piece of watercolour paper to fit.
I then stamped the Forever Stamp Set with embossing ink,
and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.

I coloured the rose and banner in with watercolours,
and then did the smooshing technique to add some soft colour to the background.
Finally, I added some Stickles for a little sparkle.

Finally, I made three notecards:

For these three cards, I simply cut the panels from the Gathers - Cut & Colour Paper.
I made black cardstock bases and adhered the panels to them.
Again, I added touches of Stickles to each card,
and finished them off with a ribbon bow.
