Oh, Candy, this is truly lovely!!! What detail and so many, yet they are so well-balanced, that alone takes great artistic maturity which you have in spades! My favorite color is purple, so I'm in delight with this new Heartfelt Creations lilac collection. I haven't been able to purchase in awhile, but I was powerless to resist this collection, since I've been waiting for HC to bring out a hydrangea or lilac collection. Your tiny lilac blossoms are delightful, and the dimension and detail is wonderful. As are all of the floral layers at the bottom of the top half of this box, with various layers of different flowers, that have dimension between so that you can really se the detail, wonderful!
Isn't HC's padded paper just THE BEST?! I'm afraid I have a little issue wanting it all and I become addicted to certain collections, like the Mum collection that sold out, sigh, I think it's my favorite although this one is pretty great, and I love as well the very different "Heartfelt Love" pad with so many sentiment blocks especially so many faith-based ones that I know I will use, I have to wait to get that one but it's high on my list for next time. I have a very healthy wish-list at HC, always, good thing I'm a Platinum girl!
The purple flowers really stand out in contrast to the blue/turquoise color that is used in a lot of the patterned papers in this great box set, even though the purple is pretty delicate, the lighter blues and other shades including some pinks really let the flowers stand out, and also the bright flowers at the base of that top half of the box really shine too. You've done an amazing job of balancing color which I admire.
This is OF COURSE going into my favorites, I think that Heartfelt Creations is extremely blessed to have you on their Design Team, Candy, I know I appreciate you as I learn from you when I see your artwork using HC product, you represent HC with distinction. What a great gift this will make for someone special, or perhaps it's already at Heartfelt Creations headquarters--is it difficult to lose your great works of art to go away to be used at Heartfelt Creations? I guess you could always make a second one, hopefully you do as these are such a lot of work, and to make a second at the same time or right afterwards wouldn't be too bad. What do you think of the new shaping plates? I've ordered some but I have to go across to the US to pick them up, hopefully in the next few weeks I am hoping... Cannot wait to try them, and I'm glad I have more than 1 die-cutting machine, as my Gemini won't work for them, but another one I have will. I have issues with my hands due to over-use as a professional classical musician and then more when I was disabled in a car accident, so shaping flowers has always been the part that would wear out my hands, so I'm excited to play with this new technology and grateful it's out and that I will be able to make a lot more flowers in the future and really play with them!
