Today the Art With Heart team Colour Creators are showcasing Calypso Coral.
I find Calypso Coral a challenging colour to work with. Not that I don't like it, but its not orange, it's not red, it's not really pink, it's a kind of in between colour. And it's also a strong colour.
To show it off, for the bold colour it is, I have deliberately teamed it with just one other colour, plus the white base card, for a couple of simple projects today.
From page 16 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue, I have selected the Bottled Happiness Bundle, which includes the Bottled Happiness stamp set and Vintage Bottle Punch.
I stamped the leaves with Parakeet Party Ink, then stamped the flowers and bottle with Calypso Coral. The bottle is stamped on a separate piece and punched out, then overlayed on to the card layers.
Card layers are Basic White and Calypso Coral. I was chatting to people on Zoom as I was creating today, so rather than getting out tons of supplies, I just gathered up pieces from my stash that were cut previously, and made them into new designs.
I can't believe I completed two cards while talking to people on Zoom! Just goes to show what you can create with the supplies you have at arms length.
I think these two colours look great with all that crisp white space around them. On a mantlepiece full of cards, this would surely stand out.
