I've found the Lost Lagoon!

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.

    1. It also compliments the Pool Party very nicely, Rose Ann. I'm really enjoying the versatility of Lost Lagoon.
