Color Coordinates: Spring Rain

Shari Carroll, Color Coordinates

Hello everyone!! Welcome to the blog and Happy Friday!!  I have a super fun technique and color combination for you that I think you will like. I am inspired by thought of Spring after all the snow we’ve gotten lately here in the Mid-West.

I used blues, greens and a hint of purple for this combo, which remind me of rain and ocean breezes. I’ve also figured out that Simon brand inks can be used to custom color tissue paper. What??  This opens up a lot of possibilities for me!!

I am so thrilled that this worked and I can’t wait to try it in all sorts of colors. Todays Color Coordinate ink colors look nice when they are overlapped with each other especially using the tissue paper. The in between colors blend nicely.

I’ve filmed a video of the complete process which you can view below or on our Youtube channel HERE.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this technique and collection of colors. Enjoy!!

  1. Beautiful! The process took me back to my childhood and the fun I had with decoupage; now I can relive that on my cards. Thank you

  2. How exciting that tissue paper can be colored with the SSS inks! 👍 I think this card can be a fun and beautiful substitute for the bunny Easter cards forsome adults I send cards to. I think my Grandma would love this card as opposed to a bunny card. Can’t wait to make this card 😁

  3. I love your card – great colors and what a clever technique. The flower die is beautiful, too. It is a nice touch of spring which we need…I also live in the Midwest. Thank you for sharing :-)

  4. WOW what great colours and popping the flower over the top In white is such a clever idea too, and using tissue paper and … oh my I could go on & on Lol. Lobe everything about tgis carx. Thankyou for the video tutorial too. Very informative xxx 💜 xxx

  5. What a great idea about inking up tissue paper! I really like how it turned out. I’m definitely going to have to give that technique a try. Love the colors too since I’m ready for spring as well!
