Color Challenge: Ocean Tide & Lilacs

photo source.

Hi All!
Wendy here to share up a beautiful Color Challenge for you!

I find a lot of inspiration in color, patterns, and beautiful quotes….over at Pinterest.  This color challenge I picked up over there with some beautiful palettes & images linked up in this post.  I live near the beach (only 30 min+ to be exact) so the color of the ocean is just so soothing & relaxing. I also love purple and lilacs are one loveliest of flowers (in my opinion) along with orchids (I likey like too) and roses….ok, yep, I love flowers. (wink wink)

Here are a few more pics that inspired me for this challenge -

So, using this inspiration & some fabulous myStampBOX stamps, here’s my color challenge project share -

“Go. Go. Go. See”

12×12 Layout

Now for some details…

A few months back, Canvas Corp so generously blog hopped with us on the myStampBOX design team.  Unfortunately, I was out of town on vacation to NYC and couldn’t do the hop but was itching to use these super cool mini canvas shapes on a project – i.e. hearts, circles, ATCs – so many possibilities!!  So, I used these with some Ranger Distress Stain + water to create the effect on these canvas shapes.  I just love the watercolor & splotchy effect to them.  Also, I used the myStampBOX set, Seal It, on the corner of the canvas heart.  I stamped it using Staz-On black ink.  The peek of embossed metal tin you see I embossed with my Big Shot Sizzix machine + embossing template + metal tin foil.

On a side note, these photos are inspired from my travels – NOLA (New Orleans), Italy (Torino), and Florida (Destin)….love travel and to “go go go see” the world…near & far.

Here I also used the Ranger Distress Stain + water again along with a heat tool and some parts of this I just allowed to air dry.  Such a beautiful & dreamy effect.  Stamped up with Seal It and Road Trip stamps.  Also, I accented with some coordinating bling, brads, and clear dewdrops.

Using some large chipboard letters (deep in my stash – ha!) along with some different colors of mist in blue & purple for the effect on this page.  Stamped (“you are here”) above the mini photo with the set Road Trip.  I repeated the “go go” with the alpha set, Rough Copy.  Such a fun alpha set you can leave as outlined or color/fill in.

Here are a few more close up pics…
