Hello and Welcome to our SUO (Stampin' Up! Only) Challenges #192.
We have a Monochromatic theme for you this time. Make sure you head over to our blog to see the wonderful designs and ideas from the whole design team!
So much creativity in one place to inspire you.
So my colour of choice is...... Bermuda Bay - did you guess???? (hehehehe)
I've had some colour fun with my card this time. The background is watercoloured with a reinker and aqua painter on our Glossy White cardstock - it looks different and the end result is shiny and fun and rather watery!! I've stamped some wavy lines from Swirly Bird in Bermuda Bay and Whisper White for some additional wateryness. (Is that a word??)
With such a cool and calm background, I had to add my super sweet mermaid and sea horses from the fabulous Magical Day Bundle. These were coloured with my Stampin' Blends in Bermuda Bay onto Glossy White cardstock. They've been die cut with the coordinating Magical Mates framelits - so much better than fussy cutting these intricate designs.
My finishing touch is some glittery Magic and Myths washi tape and some dots of the Fine Tip Glue pen for bubbles. The ribbon at the top of the card is also Bermuda Bay (of course) and it is one of the FREEBIES from Sale-a-bration!! It is a super shimmery and gorgeous ribbon - you would LOVE it! Please contact me if you wish to get some!! It's as easy as placing an order of AU$90! Click on the link to head to my online store and explore the possibilities!!
I was so in love with my sweet little mermaid and the fun of the watercoloured background, that a made a bunch of these cards!! You can even see the Wink of Stella shimmer on her in the photo!!
Now, get your own creative going, and join in the fun with us at SUO Challenges as you have fun being monochromatic. Stampin' Up! is AWESOME for this sort of challenge because we have so many amazing and varied coordinating accessories, inks, cardstock and embellishments!!
Until Next Time,
Love Julia x
