Today I’m sharing what I made during last night’s Facebook Live, where I followed a colour challenge and used scraps.
Stampin’ Up! recently set up a colour challenge for their Demonstrators to #keepstamping. When thinking about what to create, I turned to the three colours sat on my desk. These colours inspired me to create using watercolour paper scraps.
This card clearly shows the three colours set by Stampin’ Up! …. Night of Navy, Pear Pizzazz and Pumpkin Pie. I had no idea what I was creating with this one and really was winging it.
Three great colours but not three I’d previously put together. I had so many thin scraps of Watercolour paper that I decided to colour up and then heat emboss clear for some subtle detail.
Balloons, party hats and presents were stamped on the panels before heat embossing clear for that subtle sheen. It’s a little hard to photograph but hopefully, you can just about see some of that in this photo.
I kept referring to him as a Pelican during my Live, which was quite funny. The blockwork of colour really shows off these three colours, whereas my first card has them blending more.
This was the card that had me sharing how I’d use up scraps. Watercolour washing Night of Navy on scraps, Pear Pizzazz on another before punching out circles and leaves offered very frugal crafting. I had used the sponge brayer to add the ombré effect background and splattered a little water and Wink of Stella over it.
Pumpkin Pie was used to stamp the fish on watercolour paper scraps before adding water and hand cutting. The Sprig Punch created perfectly simple seaweed.
I loved how the different size of circles helped to create depth to this card and the variety of textures in paper and embellishments. A fun card that I really enjoyed creating and sharing with you all. You can still head over to Facebook to watch the recording if you wanted to see how either of these cards were made.

I hope you’ve enjoyed my inspiration for you and enjoyed the fun challenge of using these colours. Perhaps you’d like to play along and share your creations with me over on my Facebook Page. I’d love to see them.
Enjoy the weekend before us and stay safe.
