In Color Sampler
The new Stampin' Up! In Color cardstock has been in my possession for at least 2 weeks and gone uncut! Shameful! I've been wanting to use the new In Colors on a card. This week's Splitcoaststampers sketch challenge was PERFECT! I could never have come up with a better layout for using all 5 of the papers.
Since I've only bought one of the inks so far, I used Versamark to do the tone-on-tone polka dots. Another challenge was this week's Ways to Use It for altering ribbon. I stamped some twill tape with lots of small images in colors very close to the In Colors. Here are the ones I found in my collection that went really well with the In Colors:
Pool Party - Aqua Mist by Papertrey Ink
Calypso Coral - Tangerine Tango by SU!
Lucky Limeade - Kiwi Kiss by SU!
I used Prussian Blue from Colorbox as my sub for the Island Indigo but it is pretty dark and I did buy the Wisteria color ink so I used it. It's really nice now that In Colors are around for 2 years rather than just one.
Hope you have a great day and thanks for visiting!
