Color Coordinates: A Walk on the Beach


Welcome everyone! It’s Shari here with another color coordinate recipe for you. This combo reminds me of when I was a kid walking on the beach finding sea glass, balsa wood and kelp! Ahhhh the treasured memories!

Color Coordinates 7.22.16

These colors coordinate so well together and can be overlapped in your stamping without becoming muddy. I’ve chosen the Blooming Day because it has a nice tropical feel and the images are solid to show off my ink colors.

I masked off my panel before I started stamping (so I would have an idea of how it would look when finished), then trimmed it up and foam mounted it to a top folding note card. I used an ink blending tool to color some cardstock with Catkin ink, then die cut the word Friend and added it to my card.
