Welcome to week five of our Art With Heart 2024-25 Colour Creations blog hop!

Today we’re featuring another of the new 2024-26 In Colors: Summer Splash. I’ve created this graphic to show how Summer Splash compares to the current blue/greens in the Stampin Up! colour range.

As I have been time poor this week I’m sharing a quick and simple watercolour card I made at our Stampin’ Up! Onstage conference earlier this year.

This card pairs Summer Splash with Pecan Pie and our new core colour, Basic Beige. I simply stamped the teapot and the plant from the Country Flowers stamp set using Black Stazon Ink onto watercolour paper and used a water painter to lift ink from the ink pads and watercolour the image.

This new Basic Beige colour is a wonderful substitute for Sahara Sand, especially for adding shadows under images to ‘ground’ the images in a scene.

I’ve decorated the inside of the card with a layer of Basic White cardstock, stamped in Black Memento ink. The little flowers are coloured in, this time using the Summer Splash Stampin’ Blends.

TIP – use Stazon Ink when using water in your colouring (e.g. water colouring with water painters and ink) and use Memento Ink when using alcohol markers to colour in (e.g. Stampin’ Blends).

Now it’s time to hop in over to our next participant, the lovely Di Furniss – I can’t wait to see what Di has made this week!
