Colour Creations: Soft Sea Foam


Welcome back for another week of the Colour Creations Creative Showcase. This week we are looking at Soft Sea Foam. As them name suggests, it's a very soft green from the Subtles colour family.

I kept my colour palette quite pale, with just Soft Sea Foam and Whisper White. I used the Sweet Strawberry bundle for the focal panel of my card, but just the flower and leaves image. I stamped them in SSF and then used my Blending Brush to add some ink over the top. I then coloured the leaves with my Dark SSF Blend. The flowers were stamped and punched separately on Whisper White. The centre is a retired Metallic sequin.

My card actually started with the zig zags! I cut a heap of edges using the Basic Borders Dies and then adhered the layers together to form the zig zags. Just a tip - make your pieces a little wider than you want your final piece to be. This gives you a little allowance to line up the zig zags precisely. Just trim the piece when you're finished.

Both themes were carried over to the inside of the card. You can't tell in the photo, but the flowers here have Wink Of Stella on their centres rather than the sequins. 

That's all from me for tonight, but please do head on over to Cathy's blog, where you'll find the rest of this week's Soft Sea Foam cards. We have one more week of our Core colours before we start on the new In Colours - that's going to be fun!

Bye for now,



  1. You are so creative Tine - this is amazing! I love the design effect of the zig zag borders and how you've carried it over into the inside of your card too.

  2. What a stunning card Tina. I just love those zig zags and where you have blended ink and stamped on top to add softness and tie in all the elements on this card.

    Lovely subtle card Tina, the sequin centres are beautiful

  4. I love the frilly look of the layered zig-zagged panels, and the way you've blended ink over the stamped images before colouring the leaves. Those sequins are divine, aren't they?!

  5. Ooh I love that zig zag design and the softness of the colouring with the blending brushes. The sequins are a lovely finishing touch to the crisp flowers.

  6. Love the zig zags and the whole look of design Tina. The contrast of SSF and white still results in such a lovely softness of colour. Love how you echoed the zig zags on the inside too.
