I’m having fun with the Pantone Color of the year 2019 LIVING CORAL. It’s a beautiful shade that sits right dab in the middle of pink and orange. To celebrate this color I’ve come up with a Color Coordinates using Simon Says Stamp inks.
I’ve stamped a panel of white cardstock with the Simon Damask Background Cling using Simon Says Stamp white ink. Once it had a chance to dry, I cut the panel up into strips of various sizes. This is where the cool part comes in. I colored each of the strips with my ink colors using a blending tool. The image of the Damask leaves a ghosting effect with the inks.
I varied how dark I colored the strips so I could get lighter and darker tones of the inks. I used the Simon Ornate Love stamp set where I white embossed the letters LOVE and inked up each of those with the same color inks. I adhered some of the strips flush onto the card base and some are lifted up with foam tape. I wrapped the card with Silver Metallic thread trying it in a bow. I pulled the bow through the “O” and place the rest of the letters onto the strips. To finish it up, I added a few Studio Katia clear drops.
If you are interested in printing out the Color Coordinates and creating a swatch book, I have the downloadable templates available below.
