Trying out a new color combo

He everyone! How’s your week going? I’ve been busy as usual! Stamping, inking, die cutting, filming videos. Today I wanted to share a fun color combo that I “discovered” while playing with my stamps and inks from Hero Arts. I’m sure this is nothing new, but I’ve never used this combination before and I really liked it, I think its perfect for spring!

Before I tell you which colors I used I wanted to share these two cards, both feature the same ink color combination:

I used the following colors for both: Butter Bar Yellow, Tide Pool, Green Hills, Soft Lilac and Black. Here’s a closer look at each of the cards:

Thanks for being you – I used a fun Thanks Blackboard background stamp and stamped it several times going diagonally. I used a different color of ink each time and ended up making this fun color blocked background! The Thanks for being you sentiment is a new rubber stamp from Hero Arts Spring 2015 Catalog that is going to be available soon.

I also used little black pearls to embellish this simple yet colorful card. The stamped panel is popped up onto a yellow card base using foam adhesive.

Hello Wonderful is another card using this color combo. I started by stamping brush stroke images onto white panel and added a bold sentiment in black.

To add a little something extra I used two black pearls and adhered each at the end of the main sentiment.

So what do you think? Do you like this color combo? I know I sure do! I wrote it down and I’ll be sure to use it again in the future.
