Hello and welcome to Week 1 with the Art With Heart Colour Creations weekly showcase which the lovely Catherine Proctor will be running a weekly blog and other members from the Art With Heart Team. This week we start off with Balmy Blue and I hope we will inspire you with our variations of this beautiful colour.
Balmy Blue is from the Subtles Collection, it’s available in Ink, Cardstock, DSP, Blends and more. I’ve created a card using some of these products, I’ve match Balmy Blue with Night of Navy and Highland Heather.
I’ve stamped both of the Poppy Stamps in Night of Navy Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and coloured them in with the Stampin’ Blends using the light & dark Balmy Blue, light Night of Navy and light Highland Heather. The leaves are in Balmy Blue Stampin’ Blends.
To create the striped DSP, I’ve used a panel of Whisper White Cardstock by mixing Balmy Blue Ink and Frost White Shimmer Paint onto an acrylic block, this gives the ink a pearl shine to it. Refer to the photo below.
Using the Paper Trimmer as a guidance, place the Cardstock under the ruler and use an Aqua Painter (which is now retired, but we have a new product called Water Painters) to create the stripes onto the Cardstock. See the photo below.
The sentiment is from the Rooted in Nature Stamp Set and is stamped in Night of Navy Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock.
Please visit Catherine’s blog to see her creation and the links to all of the other participants who have taken part in this week’s showcase.
Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you’ve enjoyed how I’ve used Balmy Blue. Make sure you come back next week to see Basic Grey in our projects.
