As I mentioned in Tuesday’s post, I wanted to show you how you can use To A Wild Rose stamp set with a single color. In addition to showing you that, I also wanted to showcase the new In Colors that will be coming out with the new catalog, so I decided to make a whole set of cards, one in each of the new colors.
I have to confess that all five of these cards are not all exactly alike. I kept deciding to add something different after the first two.
The first one, using the new color Rococo Rose, although still very nice, just seemed very plain and I felt like it was missing something.
So for the second one I made with the Terracotta Tile color, I added some splashes in the background using both my Aqua Painter and the Wink of Stella pen. It helped, but there was still something missing, I thought.
I was finally pleased with the third attempt using Seaside Spray when I added the white on white die from the bundle in the background, keeping everything else the same.
The leaf dies were cut out in Silver Foil to compliment the silver thread I used behind the sentiment label, which is also part of the Wild Rose die set.
The Pretty Peacock color is dark and rich and oh so pretty. This is one of my favorites of the five, but it is so hard to pick just one favorite; they are all great.
Did you notice the coordinating ribbon behind the sentiment?
Last, but certainly, not least, is the Purple Posy color. It is so soft and delicate and perfect.
So, tell me, which is your favorite new In Color? I really can’t decide. I like them all for different reasons.
