Colour Combo Blog Hop February

Welcome to the Colour Combo Blog Hop for February. This month our color combination is Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point and Wisteria Wonder. I decided to use Waterfront, a new stamp set from the 2018 Occasions Catalog to explore this color combination. Living in Colorado, I love looking at the Rocky Mountains every day, so I thought a mountain scene would be fun to try. 

This stamp set has a variety of shapes that help you create amazing landscapes and I loved experimenting with the images. I decided to use Pacific Point Classic ink for the water and Wisteria Wonder Classic ink for the mountains and the clouds in the sky. To create depth and dimension to the landscape, I used Elegant Eggplant Classic ink to stamp the trees and the land around the water. 

To complete the card I used Wisteria Wonder cardstock for my card base and added a layer of Elegant Eggplant cardstock to provide a matte for the Whisper White cardstock that I used for my stamped design.
item # 145766 Sure Do Love You (Clear) Mount $21
The sentiment is from the Sure Do Love You stamp set, also from the 2018 Occasions Catalog and I really liked the way the font worked with the landscape scene. I stamped it in Versamark and heat embossed Silver Embossing powder to make it pop against the strip of Elegant Eggplant cardstock. Although I only used the Pacific Point for the water of the design, I felt like it was the focal point of the card design and tied everything together. The final touch was just a few highlights on the water, mountains and clouds with Clear Wink of Stella. 
Item #146386 Waterfront Photopolymer $17
This stamp set is so amazing to use and as you can see, you really don't need a lot of colors to create beautiful landscapes. I can't wait to try other color combinations with this stamp set and see how they turn out.

I hope you have enjoyed my card for this month's blog hop and I hope that it will help to inspire you to experiment with this color combination and give the Waterfront stamp set a try.
