Stampin' Up! Awesomely Artistic: Color Challenge

Good morning stampers!

This week's a Color Combo Challenge! Use any layout, any stamps...but use this Color Combo to spark your creativity!

Today, I'm featuring the Awesomely Artistic stamp set by Stampin' Up!  I love the color combo but honestly had a hard time this week as I wanted to use this stamp set. LOL....and my original design in my head didn't work out when on paper.....so.....this was the result.  I think it works but had to add Black too. Enjoy!

When making this card

  • Card base is Whisper White.
  • Used Basic Black for matting the focal frame and for stamping the images. So lots of black and white with splashes of Bermuda Bay and Wisteria Wonder on the card base.
  • Focal frame is matted in black and then matted on Wisteria Wonder design series paper and again on Bermuda Bay designer series paper from the Have a Cuppa Designer Series paper (Occasions Catalog 201).
  • Also used the Bermuda Bay 1/8 " stitched ribbon (Occasions Catalog 2016).
