Colour Creations Blog Hop - Week 24 Magenta Madness


 Hello and welcome

Tonight I'll be sharing with you Week 24 of Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team in Australia. 

Each week there will be a Colour Creations blog hop showcasing Stampin' Up! Colors with a selection of members from the Art With Heart Team who will be joining in. I'm looking forward to seeing their beautiful projects using the Stampin' Up! Colors. You'll be able to hop around by clicking on the next link at the end of my blog.

The colour for tonight is Magenta Madness which is part of the 2020 - 2022 In Colors Collection and comes in a number of different mediums such as Ink, Cardstock, DSP etc....I've used Magenta Madness with Basic White for my hand made Christmas card.

Well I just love Magenta Madness and I just could not resist missing out on this latest blog hop with the Art With Heart Team. I've created a fun watercolout technique which I recently saw over on Tammy Wilson's blog at Stampspaperscissors her creations are always so inspiring and creative.

The water colour Christmas trees which is from the Whimsy & Wonder Suite on page 24 - 25 of the Mini Catalogue. I've used the Christmas Trees Dies and Water color paper which is best used when using lots of water and ink. The best result is to add lots of coloured water and move it around with the Heat Tool. I also splattered ink onto the watercolor paper for a fun effect.

For the background panel I've added Magenta Madness Ink onto Basic White Cardstock with the Blending Brush. 

Then I've used the Candy Canes Stamp Set which is also from the Mini Catalogue. I've only used a section of the very large stamp, I've stamped it in Versamark Ink and sprinkled White Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.

The trees are layered over the Candy Canes and I've added the stunning White Glittered Organdy Ribbon underneath the greeting which is from Holy Jolly Wishes Stamp Set.
