My Inky Friends New In Colors Blog Hop: Purple Posy

Welcome the Lily Ink Pad Stop of the My Inky Friends 2019-2021 In Colors Blog Hop. Each year, My Inky friends celebrate the release of the new set of In Colors, which add to Stampin' Up!'s color array. Did you just check out Rhonda's use of Seaside Spray? I think I've used that color the most so far. Or maybe you came backwards from Liz's use of Rococo Rose. Either way, you've arrived at my post about Purple Posy. Enjoy!

Purple Posy is a very light lavender--just my kind of color! Unfortunately, the ink pad is not currently available as it inks too dark and foamy. Stampin' Up! is picky about quality control. However, the paper, the markers and the Blends are available, so I was able to produce a great card--and learned something new!

Cool, huh? It's even better in person. This stamp set, Butterfly Wishes, is a DistINKtive stamp set, so is very detailed and basically a solid. I decided to stamp in Smoky Slate, and color in the spaces. It turns out that the Blends color on the Smoky Slate, giving the entire butterfly a very cool look. I used the Dark Purple Posy Blend on the darker parts and the Light Purple Posy Blend on the light parts. I also used the Balmy Blue and Daffodil Delight Blends on the flower images. The Smoky Slate kind of added a hue to the blue, but it looks cool. 

I used Highland Heather ink for the sentiment. The frame was created with the Petal Labels Dies. It was an easy card to create, with a great impact. My Stampin' Celebrations Stampers loved it. 

To compare the Purple Posy with other purples in the Stampin' Up! line up of colors, I made this pic:

You can see that Purple Posy is supposed to be very light- lighter than Highland Heather, which I also love. 

Well, that's what I have for you.  Now, you can click on Next to see Liz's Rococo Rose card or click previous to see Rhonda's Seaside Spray.

Happy Hopping!
