Stampin' Up! Coral Blue Watercolor Wings
This week's challenge at Stampin' Royalty is a color challenge (Lost Lagoon, Soft Sky, Crumb Cake, and Calypso Coral). Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and stick with the same few colors, so it's fun to play along and try out some new color combos. I used the four challenge colors along with some white card stock and ink and this is what I came up with.
I stamped the solid butterfly from the Watercolor Wings stamp set with my Whisper White craft ink to help the butterflies stand out a little on the Crumb Cake card stock. For the blue butterflies, I stamped the inner layer with Soft Sky and the outline layer with Lost Lagoon. For the coral butterfly, I stamped another inner layer as well as the outline layer in Calypso Coral. For the greeting I stamped it in white first and then in Lost Lagoon (the white helps it stand out a bit). I textured the Soft Sky card stock with the Fluttering embossing folder and added some Calypso Coral seam binding ribbon around it before mounting it onto the Crumb Cake card base.
I know the Watercolor Wings set has a lot of potential and I can't wait to try it out some more. Check back soon for more ideas :)
