WCC01 - The Wacky Watercooler Colour Challenge
It's wonderful to be part of the Wacky Watercooler group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators. We have discussions on the Wacky Watercooler and from that grew our monthly Blog Hops and now our bi-monthly Challenges. It's fun to be part of this group of very enthusiastic and artistic ladies. It keeps me on my toes. For this, our first Challenge, we are using any of the brand new 2014-16 In-Colors from the new Annual Catalogue.
My colour choice was Lost Lagoon. It's a blue, but a blue that is very different from the other blues already in the Stampin' Up! colour line-up. If it's similar to any colour, I would have to say it's a deeper and slightly more smoky shade of the retired Baja Breeze. But you'll have to decide if it reminds you of that colour when you see it for yourself. Colours on the computer screen and in real life are not necessarily the same.
For my card I used a base cardstock of Basic Black with a second layer of Lost Lagoon embossed with the Arrows embossing folder. Then I used my Ovals Framelits to cut a Basic Black layer and then the stamped Whisper White layer. The stamps I used were from the new Traveller stamp set and the new Work of Art stamp set.
I finished off with a sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set and the Bitty Banners framelits.
And that is my card for the WCC01 Wacky Watercooler Colour Challenge.
