Wetlands rocks a colour challenge--PPA206

I love colour challenges.  I love to try combinations of colours that I don't usually use together.  Sometimes I discover new combinations that really appeal to me that way.  It's a good way to stretch a bit and think outside the usual box.

This week's colour challenge at the Pals Paper Arts really appealed to me.  I had just finished another one of the projects for this week's Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop and got side-tracked doing the colour challenge.  Oh well, anything that gets the creative juices flowing, right?

Those are the colours for the challenge.  I really like all the colours but haven't used them in a card together---until today.  The stamp set that immediately came to mind was the Wetlands.  Don't you think that sand and water and sky are the natural things one would associate with the challenge colours?  I certainly do.

My card showcases the colours using the watercolour technique.  I thought it was perfect framed in the Polaroid Frame that is part of the On Film framelits.  My base cardstock is Naturals White and I've also used the 2013-15 In-Colors Designer Series Paper Stack which I layered over plain Baked Brown Sugar cardstock.

.Don't forget, we're having the Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop beginning this Thursday.  It's going to be awesome.  We're featuring the new Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue. 


  1. WOW Heidi, This is gorgeous! I just love the Wetlands set & the challenge colours really do it justice. Looking forward to the blog hop :)

    1. Thanks, Tricia. The Wetlands set is really one of my favourite sets. The things you can do with it seem endless.
