I'm so excited about Stampin' Up!'s Color Renovation... but I do want to make use of some of the retiring colors before they fade into oblivion. I demo'd this card (which features Ruby Red, Cameo Coral and Creamy Caramel) at a workshop this week, using the Poppin' Pastels technique to color the Medallion stamp.
This technique never fails to impress. What could be easier and pack such a wow? Just in case you've never tried the Poppin' Pastels technique, here's a quick run down: stamp your image in VersaMark ink, use a sponge dauber to add pastel (chalk) color of your choice, moving dauber in a circular motion until the desired color depth is achieved. If you haven't already, you gotta give it a try! I showed it to my kids and they just stood there with their mouths open. Jevin said, "Wow! It's like magic!" I said, "That's right - Mommy's magic. Don't forget it!" LOL!
Well, I'm wrapping up this week and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend. 'Bye for now!
