Techniques Running Amuk

The moment I opened the pack of Natural Composition Specialty Designer Paper and saw that it was already embossed I KNEW I would be coloring it!  Here is what I have done so far today using our new  IN Colors

I began with the naturals cardstock, you can see its already embosssed in clear-  there are 6 different pattened papers to choose from  click HERE to see them

 I used Stampin Up!  blender pens and colored in various colors to see how it applied and how I would  like it

Then I grabbed my Stampin Up Sponges and started applying the color, I have to admit these new Incolors are GORGEOUS and leave such a RICH color. It sure helps that the ink pads are so juicy also!

It's official, I will HAVE to replace all my ink pads now for these new ones because they are wonderful to use! WOW Who would have thought! This small experiment has made a believer out of me today!

These are just 4"x4" squares of 3 of the 6 different papers. I think my favorite of all is the Midnight Muse color. I will be cutting a piece and sponging it in Midnight Muse to make the cover of a book- YES TODAY! So stay tuned for more posts about this!  I do like the Gumball Green but my 2nd favorite is the Raspberry Ripple in the photo above of the ink pads with the samples, it's the far left color. WOW this is going to be an amazing combination for upcoming Christmas projects!

I have to say that from this experiment altho the Summer Starfruit is nice, it's not me. But when I used it above in the flowers it mixed VERY well with Pumpkin Pie so that will be an amazing combo for fall!

I love that I didn't HAVE to emboss this cardstock so there was no stressing over placement of a stamp, getting it straight, etc... This is definitely my favorite paper from the new catalog so far!  I am going to try a few other techniques with it- brayering, watercoloring etc.....
