Do you have colors you never, or rarely, use? Do you sometimes wonder how you can possibly enlarge your palette to include those lonely pieces of card stock in the back of your stash?
One way that I have ventured into some of those forgotten colors is when I use Designer Series Paper that features them. More Mustard is one of those colors for me, and Spice Cake DSP has me using it more than I ever thought I would! Leave it to Stampin' Up! to come up with some great color combinations in their wonderful papers.
I've been fascinated with making big, soft, layered bows. Here I used Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding and Soft Suede 3/8" Taffeta, held together with an Antique Brad. The sentiment comes from Grateful Greetings (I used a marker to ink only the part of the stamp I wanted to use), and I used the Jewelry Tag Punch to make the tags.
The image piece is done on Very Vanilla card stock, using the Rock and Roll Technique on the fill images from Gently Falling. I used the Texture Stampin' Around Wheel with Crumb Cake ink to add the speckles, then couldn't resist some Gold Glow Smooch Spritz.
The background was made with More Mustard textured card stock, stamped in Crumb Cake with an outline image from Gently Falling, and then more speckles from the Texture wheel.
What color(s) do you avoid using? Are you ready to venture out of your comfort zone and add them to your palette? The Spice Cake Designer Series Paper may be a good way for you to try some new color combinations.
