After sponging on the Stampin' UP! Whipser White note card, I stamped with the Forever Florals stamp set, pg 171, #133973 / 133976 in black ink and added a greeting also stamped in black.

That's so pretty! I did something like that before but punched a large circle out of paper to use as a mask. I only did a single color but will have to try more than one now! Thanks for the great video.

Nanci

The color combo will depend on what I want the outcome to be. If I am just doing a background I could use a couple, if I am doing a scene I would use some green for the grass. Love the idea.

Doris

Love the combo you chose…pinks and oranges are so cheerful together! I agree with Nanci…the colour combo would largely be dictated, not only by personal preference, but also by the purpose of the card and the stamp set used. The green and blue combo on your test strip would work nicely with Lovely as a Tree, for example. Many thanks for generously sharing your techniques and videos. Love your blog!!

Thank you so much for the great video, and wonderful idea! I first thought the strips were adhered to the paper; but quickly learned they are not! I can't wait to try this idea for myself! Congratulations on TWENTY YEARS as a demonstrator! Did you ever imagine your signing up would turn into this success??!! You are awesome!

S. Carter

Patty, you are scary organized. :)

Susan Mac Donald

your colour combos are well chosen, but I have to say my favourite would be in the pinks/oranges tones; a wonderful technique for club members; TFS!!

Candy Gibson

the color combos were really striking
