Welcome to week six of our 2020-2021 Art With Heart Colour Creations Showcase.
Each week various members of our Art With Heart Colour Creations team will be bringing you weekly colour inspiration as we showcase our range of over 50 beautiful Stampin’ Up! colours in alphabetical order.
Week 11 – Coastal Cabana
Coastal Cabana is one of the brights and such a happy colour – exactly what we all need in our world right now! Today I’ve paired it with Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Old Olive, Crumb Cake and Whisper White to create two watercolour scenes.
I’ve used a beautiful stamp set called Seaside View that I gave to my “crafting partner in crime” (AKA known as Jenny Boffey!) as part of her birthday present last week.
I then immediately borrowed it back from her to make my Coastal Cabana Cards!
I stamped my seaside images using Black Stazon ink onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and then used my smallest water painter brush to lift ink off the lids of the my ink pads and water colour my scenes.
The sentiments are also from the Seaside View stamp set but I stamped them with the Saddle Brown Stazon ink – I love this colour and I think it looks great with Soft Suede.
The background layer for my “Take Time for Yourself” card is die cut using the largest Ornate Layer die and the other layers are cut using the stitched rectangle dies.
Card two also uses the largest Ornate Layer die but it was too big for the notecard base so I trimmed the edge off the die and uses it as a lace detail at the top and the base of my card.
Don’t you love it when you already have the matching prop for a photo shoot? I found these miniature chairs at an op shop several years ago – they are so cute and just perfect for this Coastal Cabana seaside card!
Both cards are finished off with a bow of linen thread.
