Pantones Under the Sea

Always enjoy a good challenge and I found the one at Papertrey Ink intriguing for Make it Monday. I hadn't heard of the Pantone chip inspiration. You're supposed to take a single color chip and match the stamp color or decorative accents to that chip. I am fond of the color blue and fond of this whale stamp so I paired them up. I watercolored some cardstock and deliberately chose a spotty part for the whale because the whales I've been privileged to see on rare occasions have plenty of mottled color. Needed a few sequins, in my mind, for the sun reflecting off the water.

Thanks for looking. In case you come directly to this post and not the home page, I made another pantone chip inspired card using the peonies anniversary set with a pink chip, because...pink!

Stamps: Papertrey Ink Keep Swimming, Dies: PTI Keep Swimming; Paper: Neenah solar white, scrap of blue, watercolor; Inks: Ranger distress Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans, archival black; Other: sequins, wink of stella



I did find a few other challenges where this will fit, new blogs to me and some intriguing challenges and fine design team examples.

This would qualify for the following:

Deep Ocean Challenge #157: Die Cuts, Chipboards and/or Punches ... the whale is diecut
Crafty Critter Crazies...Just use a critter...my whale
Monochrome Magic ...Anything goes as long as it is monochrome

This one makes me smile -- I keep thinking the whale is trying to fit into the little square. :-) Seriously, your mottled whale turned out great. Nice take on the challenge!
