Ah, I am going to miss last year's set of trendy colors! How funny when you think back to my first glimpse of them and my initial reaction of "Oookaaaay..." And Kiwi Kiss, which I thought was a disaster--it turned out to be such a cool color. When I first saw it I thought it was an annoying reincarnation of Old Olive and I despaired of even using the one pack I got in the demo-preorder bundle!
I am really glad I got them early last year and had all year to enjoy them. Be sure to check out my Color Club post to find out an inexpensive way to get all six of the new colors and have a fun night out every month.
This card was the result of an experiment to see if Shimmer White paper was really a necessity for the Magic Reinker Spread technique (it really is). This one turned out cool, though, and the paper had a funky texture from being made so wet with the spritzer. I embossed the flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral onto Whisper White cardstock and spritzed them heavily with water, using the tip of my Aquapainter in straight reinker to color them with Apricot Appeal, So Saffron and Kiwi Kiss.
The picture really doesn't do it justice--it turned out awesome. And that crazy Kiwi Kiss was absolutely the perfect touch. Who knew? Wonder what color from this year's batch will be the surprise runaway hit? Care to make a predicton?
