As soon as I saw the Waterfront Stamp Set in the Spring/Summer Catalogue, I was smitten.
It appears my class attendees were too as they asked for a class on it. This class has recently taken place and all of the projects are inspired by places I’ve visited and are named accordingly.
I’m going to show you the first two projects, inspired by Maldives and St Lucia.
This is similar to one of projects in the catalogue but it reminded me of my time in the Maldives.
As the colours are quite bright, the simplicity of this project and the vast amount of white space make it work. Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz and Pumpkin Pie is the colour combination for this project.
Masking makes the sun appear on the horizon.
Next we have ‘St Lucia’
I visited St Lucia in 2013 and the stamped double mountains are my version of the Pitons.
For this project it is easier to stamp the mountains first, then the sea, then fill in the sandy areas afterwards. This avoids having green sand where the colours mix! The trees, huts and sun are next, before adding ‘splats’ to the layer.
Island Indigo, Pool Party, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip and Wild Wasabi are the colours for this project.
I love how a combination of first and 2nd generation stamping makes the water come to life.
All of the projects can work with or without a sentiment. There was a sentiment station set up at the class for attendees to use if they wished.
Do you have a favourite out of these?
Pop back soon for the next two Waterfront Stamp Set projects.
