Color Coordinates With Shari Carroll


Are you ready for a fresh Spring Color Coordinates? I’ve come up with a new combination of soft pastel colors just for you!

This Color Coordinates Recipe goes perfectly with the Wide Stripes cling stamp to create some fun backgrounds. I’ve created two backgrounds; one plaid and one simple stripes. By turning the paper in the Misti and stamping again, it’s easy to create a quick plaid. 

Rather than just inking the stamp, I’ve used swiping motions to get a unique texture on both the background and the Artful Flowers. To finish off both of my cards, I’ve used the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Strips 2

  1. I love that you brilliant artists share your skills and come up with things I wouldn’t. The color combination is fabulous and I love the stripes, but he plaids even more! Thank you!

  2. These are so beautiful Shari, these colours are fantastic. A great tip using the acetate for the inking process a real time saver!

  3. Beautiful spring colors! I also loved the idea to ink the stamp and then swipe it for a neat look. Beautiful!

  4. This is such a pretty colour combination! I really like the textured effect from swiping the ink pad across the stamps

  5. These cards are so pretty! I love the colors you chose and the stamp sets. Thanks for creating this inspiring series of videos, Shari.

  6. The pastels in the color coordinates this month are so pretty. The technique you used for the inking of the stripes and flowers gives a beautiful watercolor effect to the images. Lovely cards!
