One of the new In-Colors for 2014-2016 is called Lost Lagoon. It's a blue like no other in Stampin' Up!'s current colour palette. I love its slightly grey cast. It looks wonderful used for the baby album that I created as one of my Blog Hop projects and looks equally wonderful used for an adult card.
I have been using the Work of Art stamp set a fair bit lately because it makes such wonderful backgrounds. Actually, it also makes a pretty great piece of focal art as well. I can imagine coming up with many more various ways to use the set. For this card I stamped the medium sized "blocky" stamp with the full intensity of the Lost Lagoon ink. Then I stamped rays coming from that using the rather long and "skinny" stamp, also using the Lost Lagoon ink but this time I stamped off once and then stamped the ray.
I cut a piece of typing paper to the size of the "blocky" stamp and covered the stamped image on the Whisper White. I didn't want to get any of the Hello Honey ink on that portion when I spattered the card using my Aqua Painter and some of the Hello Honey ink refill.
Finally, when everything was completely dry, I went over the stamped Whisper White with my Embossing Buddy and then, using Versamark, stamped "You are a fabulous work of art" onto the "blocky" image. Then I heat embossed the sentiment using White Embossing Powder. It really pops.
I used a base cardstock of Lost Lagoon and then my next layer is Hello Honey. I love the way it brings out the spatters of that colour on the main design. Before adhering the Whisper White, however, I decided to bring it up a notch. I used the little cut-out framelit from the Chalk Talk dies and created four little cut-outs along the left border. Through those I laced some of that gorgeous new In-Color Stitched Satin Ribbon.
A little rhinestone coloured with the deepest shade of the Daffodil Yellow Blendabilities finished off the card beautifully.
