Stamp Review: Tropical Chic

I’m back again, hopping with the Stamp Review Crew! Today we’re sharing projects that feature the Tropical Chic stamp set.

I am loving all the new colors in the Stampin’ Up! color families. As a whole, the colors are brighter and, in my opinion, happier looking. So far, I’ve only gotten the markers and one pack of new colored cardstock, because even though I’m a demonstrator, I’m still on a budget!

Luckily, you can do a LOT with markers. You can stamp, sponge, and of course… watercolor!

Markers are my favorite tool for watercolor washes. I just color the background where I want the wash to be, then add water on top to blend it together.

This bright rainbow of new colors features Lovely Lipstick, Mango Melody, Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, and Garden Green. Garden Green is the only color in this lineup that isn’t new!

This is a very fun and versatile stamp set. You can feature it on its own for a fun tropical feeling card, or the leaves work well in the background with animals, flowers, or anything with a great outdoors theme!

    1. Indeed! The trick is to not add too much water! The more water you add, the lighter the colors get. I dip the brush in the water, the wipe it on the edge of the cup to take off some of the excess.
