Color Matters: A Short History of Blue

   How's Life Friends?

   I'm so excited to announce a new blog feature entitled "Color Matters." One of the reasons I love this stamping hobby is that I can feel artistic, learn more about something beautiful, and explore my creativity in such an accessible way. With a stamp I don't worry about drawing; with Distinctive and Two Step Stamps I don't fret about painting. I can experiment with creating something by using a starting off point and be as simplistic or as complicated as I choose.

   In Color Matters I will be showcasing a bit of art history, color theory, and design ideas focusing on color and color combinations!

   I'm a big fan of blue. From Levis, to Blue Skies, blue has always caught my eye! It's one of the first combinations I try with a new stamp does it look in blue/white? Today's designs use Misty Moonlight in first, second, and third impressions. [Stamp once with inked stamp and then stamp again without reinking.]

   The Sale A Bration set "A Touch of Ink" is a new favorite collection of images for me. There's something so perfect about the scale of the images and the sketch style of the line drawings to stamp either by themselves or filled in with the solid color fill stamps. I paired them with the sentiments from another favorite of mine: Fine Art Floral Suite. Purchase this Suite now and receive A Touch of Ink free for Sale A Bration reward! 

   I hope you check back for more color matters. Subscribe to the blog feed to stay tuned, and please feel free to let me know if there are any topics you'd like to learn more about. I'm happy to put my stamp on just about know what I mean;)

   Enjoy and Be Well Friends!
