Well, this week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a bright and bold colour combination that I have to admit had me a little stumped at first. However, I do love the card that resulted!
As always with the Inspire.Create colour combinations we are allowed to add neutral colours and so I’ve added Basic Black to really made these colours POP!
The Accented Blooms stamp set is carrying forward into the new catalogue and since I’ve cleared by Stamp Shelves of items that are leaving us in the Last Chance list its really jumped out at me at a set I haven’t used for a while. Here it’s stamped in Stazon ink onto watercolour paper and then watercoloured with the colours from the challenge.
The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and while it does coordinate with the Tailored Tag punch, I have hand cut it on this occasion.
This is where I got stuck! How to finish the card. In the end I plumped for a panel of Poppy Parade card stock embossed using the Country Floral Embossing Folder and a bow of retiring Black Shimmer Ribbon

StampinByHannah Make It Monday Watercolour Accented Blooms
One of the major perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is the treatment you get from Stampin’ Up! They LOVE to treat their demonstrators…. whether that is through early releases and pre-orders, events, or they Demonstrator Exclusive Magazine; Stampin’ Success. The latest issue landed on my doorstep last week, and the card on the front really jumped out at me… and I just HAD to share it with you to!
The Accented Bloom set set is so pretty… particularly when heat embossed in Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Check out the video to see how I created the watercolour effect…
Lovely Lipstick; 21 x 10.5 cm, scored at 10.5 cm
Shimmery White Card stock; 9.5 x 9.5 cm
I am loving this colour combination too; Lovely Lipstick and Grapefruit Grove. What’s your current favourite colour combination?
It’s day 4 of our In-Colour week here at StampinByHannah….. and this might be my favourite project all week! I LOVE this stamp set… I can see it watercoloured, no-line coloured, simply stamped, fussy cut…. and much more!
This card uses Shimmery White card stock…. and my new camera has managed to pick up the sparkle!! YES! but it is why the images are a little darker than we are used to.
