Today's card was originally going to be about the new In Color, Lost Lagoon~~and it is. In addition though, it is also about the other products used while creating the card. For starters, do you recognize the embossed background? That is the embossing folder that was one of the items available during Sale-a-bration and is now in the annual catalog! The Lost Lagoon ribbon is next~~just beautiful! The image and sentiment are from a new hostess set, Bloom With Hope. I stamped the image using Black Memento ink and colored the image using Blendabilities, SU's alcohol markers which were just released. The markers are alcohol based and would not work well using our Staz-on black ink. So, SU has introduced Black Memento ink for use with the new Blendabilities. The Blendabilities come in sets of 3 for $11.95. The main color in this particular set is Coastal Cabana and then one marker is a little lighter than that and one a little darker. I colored the stem using a regular SU marker. (A little note~~our markers are not being replaced by the Blendabilities.) The sentiment was stamped using the Lost Lagoon ink pad. I am looking forward to sharing all the new things on June 8th while at the same time selling many of my retired items. Mark your calendars for June 8th and stop by between 1-4 for a little fun and picking up your annual catalog.. Have a great day!
