I never did jump on the Copics bandwagon because they are so darn expensive–and I am no artist! But, when I saw the new blendabilities from Stampin Up!, I decided to give them a try! I love that they are square so they don’t roll off of my table, and I don’t love that they are SO hard to get open–but I know that they have to be that way to stay nice and juicy. They are not kidding when they say that you should not open them close to your project–you risk getting splatters on your paper–don’t ask me how I know that, haha! After reading about many other stampers experiences, I knew to use a very light touch. I am looking forward to getting more of the colors and playing with them a lot more!
On to my project for the evening–I opened up my new pack of Flowerpot DSP and chose the crushed curry pattern. I paired it with Old Olive–the combo of green and yellow just makes me smile! I knew I wanted to make a clean, simple card, so I used a plain flower–I meant to pull out my most favorite new Hostess set-Bloom with Hope–but accidentally used a retired set. Oops– I also used Gorgeous Grunge as a background–I love that set!– and one of the tiny sayings from Petite Pairs.
