Welcome to Week 3 of the Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team - Colour Creations Showcase.
If you are just joining me, this week our creation divas are exploring one of my favourite Stampin' Up! colours - Bermuda Bay! We would love you to check out everyone's work and leave us some feedback in our comments.
If you would like to see all of our team's Bermuda Bay creations, go to gorgeous Cathy's blog here and get all the links there.
So let's take a look at Bermuda Bay!
In our 2020 January to June Handmade for You Mini Catalogue, our Birthday Bonanza product suite had one of the most gorgeous colour combinations. One of those colours has since retired, but is easily substituted to still give you a lovely rainbow of six beautiful shades to work with.
These colours sing to me of ocean reefs, fish and coral. So it's no wonder I pulled the stamp set Seaside Notions off my shelf.
For this card front I did something slightly different. I literally drowned the reverse side of the Thick Whisper White card stock with water and Bermuda Bay Ink from the Ink refill and let it soak through.
I love the new embossing folder - Seabed and I enjoyed stamping, watercolouring and fussy cutting these cute images. A bit of ribbon, some gems from the Holiday Rhinestones pack and half a dozen Stampin' Dimensionals are enough to make these cards pop with all the lovely textures.
For the next card, I removed the yellows and oranges and just stuck with the Bermuda Bay and Coastal Cabana.
Again, that embossing folder is sublime!
I've stamped all the images with Bermuda Bay and just done a very light watercolour wash with Coastal Cabana over them.
Whilst Bermuda Bay is not exactly Santorini Blue, I couldn't help thinking of a bit of Mediterranean home decor with this colour scheme too. I have recently acquired Country Home stamp set - to do rustic vintage style cards - but I was suddenly picturing a Bermuda Bay jug full of bright blooms on a white washed stone windowsill . . .
Thank you to my Stampin' Up! demonstrator friends who cruised the Greek Islands last year for all your inspiring photos!
In this card, I stamped the jug using Jet Black Stazon Ink onto Coastal Cabana card stock, then added shadows with Bermuda Bay ink. The jug is then cut by hand and popped up with a couple of Dimensionals. I'm not sure why in this photo the flowers come out brilliant blue when on the card they are exactly the same colour as the jug - the joys of technology!
All of the products I have used for these three cards are shown below.
