Week 23 Art With Heart Colour Creations Weekly Showcase Magenta Madness

Hello and welcome to Week 23 with the Art With Heart Colour Creations Weekly Showcase. Which the lovely Catherine Proctor is running our weekly blog and with a selection of other Stampin' Up! Demonstrators from the Art With Heart Team. 

This week we are featuring Magenta Madness in our projects. I love how bright and vibrant this colour is and it's fun to use when it comes to card making. Magenta Madness is part of the 2020-2021 In Color Collections and comes in a range of Stampin' Up! products such as the Classic Stampin' Pad, Cardstock, Stampin' Blends and more. 

Magenta Madness

For my slimline card I've combined the Coming Home Bundle and the Peace & Joy Bundle. Both are in the Stampin' Up! August - December 2020 Mini Catalogue and are available for purchase in my online store.

The stamped images are in Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and die cut out. I've coloured in the houses and trees in the following Stampin' Blends - Magenta Madness, Purple Posy, Highland Heather, Balmy Blue, Night of Navy, Daffodil Delight, Smoky Slate and Color Lifter.

The white snow layers are lightly sponged with the Sponge Daubers using the following Inks - Magenta Madness, Gorgeous Grape, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy.

I have sponged coloured ink with Sponge Daubers onto the panel of Whisper White Cardstock to create a bright sunset sky. Starting with Daffodil Delight blending into Magenta Madness and then Gorgeous Grape. I like to go over and blend in the colours together. 

Using the fine tip Water Painter, I flick water droplets onto the coloured cardstock giving it a starry night. 

The Peace & Joy Bundle is perfect for this card and I've used the Bright die in Thick Whisper White Cardstock. The stamp set has a range of smaller words to create your own greetings. 

I forgot one thing with this card. Can anyone see what I've left out? I can still add it on but it was too late and I had already taken photos of the card.  

Thank you for visiting my blog with the Colour Creations Weekly Showcase and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's projects.
