Colour my Monday … Continued! Tempting Turquoise

Yes it’s back! Not just because I didn’t quite finish the SU colours … I’ve got two left to look at … But also because I enjoyed this approach to looking at the colour and using that as the inspiration point! So thought I would start on the Distress inks as well to go through those (I don’t own as many!) and then see where I get to!


But first things first let’s finish off my SU colours for now! Of course there will be new In Colors later in the year too, but I have one bright and beautiful colour to showcase this week…

I can’t quite believe I haven’t done this before now as I love this colour and use it a lot… Or at least I thought I did, but maybe I haven’t used it as much as I thought!

I started with a small panel of whisper white cardstock and the Alphabet embossing folder. I inked up the folder before running it through the Big Shot, this created a lovely effect on the paper. I mounted this onto Tempting Turquoise cardstock. I then created a topper of one of the fabulous steampunk houses Darcy created for Paperartsy … Isn’t it fab? I coloured it with my Spectrum Noir pencils to create the shading and fab colours. I fussy cut it out and then mounted it on dimensionals to give more dimension to the card.

Next I created the little sentiment topper, using a Ciao Baby stamped frame, and the little punch that coordinates. Then I stamped some little alpha stamps into the New Home sections which I cut out. I added the bakers twine, sentiment topper and pearl gem and then affixed the whole panel to the card blank.


Love how this looks, funky, and fun! Perfect as a new home card!

Happy crafting!
