I just can’t get this color right from my camera. Evidence of amateur photography, I guess. Bermuda Bay, one of the 2010 In Colors, is a cross between Taken with Teal and Tempting Turquoise (closer to teal). It’s very pretty — another tropical color that suits our current weather, hot and miserably humid. If the corn is happy, I’m probably not.
Here you can see more of the ten Circle Circus stamps, which are designed to match the sizes of our circle punches, and the cute 1/2″ Polka-Dot Grosgrain Ribbon that is offered only in the six In Colors. Note from the knot that the dots are on one side only.
Is committing to the annual In Colors difficult for you? A full pack of paper, a stamp pad, a roll of coordinating ribbon, and even (hooray!) a matching marker is probably less than a pair of shoes. Stampers ask about buying re-inkers; I have been buying them for the In Colors and will gladly re-ink your pad if you feel it’s necessary. I just don’t re-ink very often, but after using new pads yesterday, I wonder if some of my older colors could be refreshed. Anyway, unless you’re doing a technique that uses re-inkers (e.g., shaving cream, baby wipe), I wouldn’t put them at the top of your wish list.
Now, having said that, you’ll see some techniques using re-inkers that we haven’t done in awhile — or ever — at July’s camps!
