Good morning and how are you doing this fine July 3rd morning? Are you enjoying the new Stampin' Up! year so far? What is your new favourite must-have from the new catalogue?
I am still eagerly awaiting my order of new products from the 2014-2015 Catalogue (the first of many over the next 12 months I am sure!). But being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, we were given the opportunity to preorder a certain selection of stamps and accessories before July 1st. I preordered the Work of Art stamp set and set about looking up ideas on Pinterest. I found this incredible card and wanted to give it a go using the fabulous new In Color Lost Lagoon.
I absolutely love the brush strokes of the Work of Art stamp. This brush stamp can be used for so many different cards and I have seen it used beautifully to create a rainbow. I stamped it here first in Crumb Cake. I then cleaned and inked again with Lost Lagoon. I stamped off once on to a piece of scrap paper and then stamped three times on to my Whisper White layer giving this gradually faded effect of the same colour to represent the sea and sky.
I love how this card combines the brand new Work of Art and Lost Lagoon with my old favourite, Wetlands. I stamped the birds from Wetlands in Basic Black to look as if they were skipping through the shallow waters against the sands.
I finished with the grasses stamped in Crumb Cake and the sentiment taken from Wetlands stamped in Lost Lagoon. I then added three Neutrals Candy Dots to reflect the beach colour scheme.
