These colors are darker than our 2013- 2015 collection. It seems Stampin' Up cycles through a light collection, and a dark collection every other year. This period we move into the 'darks'.
I used three techniques on each card to show the colors. I stamped the image in a design on the cardstock background, then stamped the same color on white, and sponged the edges with the ink.
I then used the sentiment stamp to show color-on color saturation.
I LIKE them!!
and, last but not least
I'm not normally a big fan of green, and have come to recognize I need to use green in my paper crafting - I like the Mossy Meadow color - especially stamped on white.
