Sneak Peek: Tip Top Taupe

If you knew me well, you would know that neutral colors are in MY wheelhouse, so to speak.  With that said, one of the new Stampin' Up! In Colors is going to be one of my all time favorites. Tip Top Taupe. Say it with kind of rolls off the tongue. TIP TOP TAUPE. This is just a little close up of a watercolor technique I did this  morning.

After I did a "swoosh" of color with water and ink, I dropped extra course sea salt on to the wet area and let it dry. The salt absorbs some of the ink/water mixture and leaves you with a lovely design. 

The leaves are from the Choose Happiness stamp set. The flower is the Pansy Punch. Finished it off with a Neutrals button and some Linen Thread, all Stampin' Up! products. 

It’s almost time to say goodbye to retiring products from the 2014–2015 annual catalog. Before we say goodbye to these amazing products, though, we’re giving everyone an opportunity to order retiring products (some of them at discounts prices up to 50 percent off retail) before they’re gone for good. Retiring products will only be available until June 2 (or while supplies last), so be sure to get your orders in early. Shop now!  

I hope you enjoyed the project. Please use hostess code TE6ZJN9X  when ordering online, unless your order will total $150 before shipping & tax. At that point, you become your own hostess and get all the rewards! Please keep in mind if you choose "no contact" from the demonstrator, I'm unable to even send you a thank you note for your order...That's right, I'm not even able to see your name. 

As always, let me know if you have any questions about the project or the products used. Thanks for visiting my blog. 

Artfully Yours,
