NEW for CHA W14…day #2...

THANKS SO VERY MUCH 

for the sweet comments/emails & enthusiasm about day #1 new studio 490 stencils…

if you like them,  I think you'll REALLY like what you see next week…

I sure DO!

it's day #2 & I am beyond thrilled to tell you that we are adding 6 new ink colors to my designer series archival palette

here's the official Ranger press release, showing the new BEAUTIFUL colors...






as with the first 6 archival colors, I had fun choosing more cottage garden flower names…

these new colors coordinate very well with my first 6 archival colors & they are awesome when used with the distress palette...

I did a quick stamping with the large splat stamp, to show you a closer look…and I can't wait to tell you about them…




top left is TREE BRANCH… a wonderful khaki/brown/tan, that is neutral, so that it works well with lots of colors, just like watering can archival does…I have pretty much used TREE BRANCH on every project…either for background stamping or for stenciling the main image…it's an every day go to ink color...

top right is DANDELION…OMG…I have been waiting for this since the first release…you will love this! it's just exactly what I wanted…I had such a hard time eliminating it from the first release…keeping the release to only 6 was very hard…
finally we have DANDELION…I think the photo below shows the awesome color better…



middle row on the left…LEAF GREEN…this is a brighter beautiful green & it's more of a kelly green…I talk more about it below...

middle row right…FORGET-ME-NOT…ok…I'll be honest…I got sweaty when I first opened this color…it is soooooo pretty & such a beautiful teal-ish color…paired with DANDELION, orange blossom, potting soil, TREE BRANCH, both fern green & LEAF GREEN…it's fabulous…

bottom row left…HYDRANGEA…this is a gorgeous purple-ish blue…it's awesome with DANDELION, LEAF GREEN, fern green, cornflower blue, orange blossom & wait til you see it used with TREE BRANCH…totally wonderful! I LOVE it for backgrounds & those skinny little bits flowers? PERFECTION!

bottom row right…this is CARNATION RED…it's a brighter beautiful cherry red…it too works well with all of the other 5 colors in this release & it's great with cornflower blue, fern green & orange blossom…every time I stamp it I say WOW! it really POPS! Rick wanted to tell you that it is his favorite…so that's right from the head of shipping & receiving! hmmm... now he's an ink expert! he'll probably want a raise! lol...

reinkers are available for these pads…yippee!

I'll be demoing how to use all 12 archival reinkers for making cool backgrounds at CHA & I will be posting some tutorials right after CHA…

archivals work well with stamps & I totally LOVE them with stencils too…

below are some of the colors used with the LITTLE BITS stencil (that I showed yesterday)  & the wildflower stencil





the leaves are LEAF GREEN & the script background stamping is TREE BRANCH...

and the new "add a stencil" is with FORGET-ME-NOT...

the 5 flower colors from left to right are
#1 CORNFLOWER & a bit of HYDRANGEA stamped with HYDRANGEA dots
#2 CARNATION RED
#3 DANDELION
#4 ORANGE BLOSSOM with HYDRANGEA dots with watering can
#4 FORGET-ME-NOT

designing inks is a totally different process than designing stamps, stencils & art parts. when the little package arrives it's exciting scary to see if they are exactly what I wanted…

YES! they are! phew! I'm in LOVE!

GIGANTIC thanks to Ranger, Tim & Jim, (the chemist) for making us more beautiful inks so that we can make art! 
you have made me so very happy!

I'm anxious to hear what you think about my 6 new babies...

I'll see you back here on Monday with more "new for CHA" products…
hmmm…I wonder what it will be…

I'll have to decide between

new stamps?

new art parts & new _____?

or new SiSi?

I just *MIGHT* post some peeks over the weekend on my FACEBOOK PAGE

you can click LIKE to add it to your timeline…
I'd LIKE that!

have a GREAT weekend & I hope you can take some time for yourself to...

make art!

As a HUGE fan of your Archivals I'm hopping around like an overexcited bunny about these new colours. The Hydrangea and Dandelion are probably my favourites but then it's when you start playing with them that new favourites appear. I have reinkers and specialty paper on standby here at my craft desk waiting desperately for your new technique! Jenny x
