What a fun challenge we have for our Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop this month. To be fair, I think I say that every month but… this month, it’s more in-house with us playing along to our team’s favourite colours.
If you are new to this hop, we are a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators sharing our love for papercrafting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. So sit back and enjoy your trip around the world.
Each of our team had to nominate our favourite colour and this is what our beautiful leader, Angie Mckenzie has put together. Don’t all the colours look so beautiful together?
So our project had to include at least three of these colours. We could choose from Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Mint Macaron, Soft Sea Foam, Pale Papaya, Petal Pink, Rich Razzleberry, and Starry Sky.
Can you guess who picked which colour I picked?!? I’d have to guess too because I can’t remember! It would be a very close tie between Pool Party and Coastal Cabana and depending on my mood on the day it fluctuates. So I used them both on my project. In fact, I was able to incorporate quite a number while colouring this image.
I chose the In the Moment stamp set as today is International Women’s Day. This set has 3 images of women and is great for colouring in.
I started off by colouring the dress in Pale Papaya Stampin’ Blends with some added detail using the Early Espresso Watercolour Pencil. The hat and belt were coloured in Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blends. The bench was coloured with some Natural Tone and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends with added details using Watercolour Pencils.
I die cut the image using the Stylish Shapes circle die then fussy cut around the girl. A second circle was die cut, on which I blended Pool Party ink with a Blending Brush. The image was then mounted on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I wanted to create a little beachy atmosphere on my card so I added the clouds and palm leaves which were die cut from Soft Sea Foam Cardstock, Then I blended Bermuda Bay ink to add some gradation to it.
I used our new Irresistible Blooms stamp set to heat emboss the flower on Shimmery White Cardstock. Then I watercoloured it in Rich Razzleberry ink. I fussy cut the flower and layered it to create depth. This coordinated with my Rich Razzleberry wine glass coloured with Watercolour Pencils. I love being able to mix and match our various colouring mediums.
