Colour Creations Blog Hop 2022-2024 In Colours - Tahitian Tide


It's Wednesday, which means it's time for the next Colour Creations Blog Hop with the Art With Heart Team. This week the blog hop features Tahitian Tide which is the last of the 2022-2024 In Colours. 

I have made two cards to share with you tonight which feature Tahitian Tide.
For the first card I used the Elephant Parade Bundle.

I stamped one of the elephant images on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper and coloured with a Water Painter. This was then cut out with one of the Stylish Shapes Dies.

The balloon is cut from the 2022-2024 In Colour Glimmer Paper Pack with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.

The second card I made was a really quick and simple card. I stamped the main wave image from the Waves of Inspiration  stamp set in a combination of Tahitian Tide and Bermuda Bay ink. I used my Stamparatus so that I could stamp the image numerous times in exactly the same position.

The greeting was stamped in Tahitian Tide ink and cut out with one of the dies from the Waves Dies set. The small pieces of ribbon are White Crinkled Seam Binding coloured with a Tahitian Tide Blends Marker.

I used lots of crisp white space on both of my cards, I love the look with Tahitian Tide.

Now it's time to see what my lovely team member Theresa Gerrard has to share with us.
