Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 29 – Mossy Meadow
This is our last colour for 2020, but we will continue mid-January 2021 with the remainder of the SU colours, after a much deserved break!
I really struggled coming up with something using Mossy Meadow – I think it is the darkness of it that throws me, but that is the challenge with this showcase. We all have our preferred colours and some we don’t warm to as much, and this is one of mine 😁
When I can’t figure out what to do, I head to the Stampin’ Up! colour coach for ideas and I selected the middle combination: Mossy Meadow – Flirty Flamingo – Coastal Cabana
I haven’t created too much with the Basket of Blooms stamp set so I thought that might be a good place to start, seeing as there is foliage for Mossy Meadow! I started by stamping the foliage once, then again without reinking, and instead of using markers to colour it, I used the Blending Brushes to add a softer layer of this dark colour. The Rectangle Stitched dies were used to cut it out. Using the Decorative Mask, I sponged the background and the edges.
Of course the blooms had to be Flirty Flamingo for that lovely pop of colour and I used the coordinating punch to cut them out. They also have Wink of Stella on them and some faceted gems in the centres.
The pot is stamped in Coastal Cabana on white card and coloured with blending brushes
(coming soon) before being fussy cut. I also sponged the ink behind where the pot would sit for some shading. I splattered Wink of Stella across the Masked Mossy Meadow layer before adding the centre panel. It really gives the card that extra sparkle!
