Stampin' Addicts New In Colors Blog Hop! How exciting to welcome some new colors to our collection! As a beginner stamper, I focused on stamp images. But now days, it is all about the color, and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this year's. Grab a cup of coffee, sit back, and enjoy the yummy color tour.
If you have been following the blog hop in order, you have just come from Tanya's blog featuring Mint Macaron. Weren't her projects fabulous? For my stop on this blog hop, I am highlighting the new In Color Tip Top Taupe.
When I chose Tip Top Taupe as a featured color, I thought about monochromatic projects. In order to get a good feel for the new colors, and which colors might go together, I just sat down and started watercoloring some images. Watercoloring is so relaxing for me, but I digress. Here's what I came up with -
Stamps: Pleasant Poppies (retiring); Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Watercolor paper, Cherry on Top DSP; Ink: Soft Sky, Tip Top Taupe, Black Stazon; Accessories: Tip Top Taupe lace trim, Aquapainter, Sewing machine, Thread.
I've always wanted to make a flapper dress with the Fringe scissors. I grabbed a dress silhouette image off the internet and layered from there.
Stamps: Dotty Angles, Celebrate Today; Paper: Crumb Cake, Tip Top Taupe, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Cherry on Top DSP; Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Crumb Cake, Encore Gold (retiring); Accessories: Pearl jewels, Watercolor brush.
Speaking of color combinations, let's try mixing it up a bit. Tip Top Taupe and Delightful Dijon makes me think sunflowers.
Stamps: Flower Shop, Petite Petals, Bohemian Borders, Flower Patch, Sprinkles of Life; Paper: Delightful Dijon, Old Olive, Tip Top Taupe, Bohemian DSP, Watercolor paper; Ink: Delightful Dijon, Old Olive, Tip Top Taupe; Accessories: Pansy punch, Petite Petals punch, Aquapainter, Flower Fair framelits, Big Shot.
I'm including a work-in-progress to illustrate how fun Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron are together.
