The Craft's Meow July Blog Hop! Sweet Taste of Summer

Welcome to The Craft's Meow July Blog Hop!

Today is a really special day for me, The Craft's Meow & TCM DT
are showcasing all of my clear stamp designs collection in this month's Blog Hop!

I'm so excited! Thank you Lisa & TCM Design Team!

If you came from the talented Sharri Seffens's blog, WELCOME!
I'm so happy you are joining the fun :)

Today I'm sharing with you a little "COLOR RECIPE" using Copics Markers 
and one of the stamps in the set "Sweet Taste of Summer"

(Photo source from Pinterest)

Sometimes we are short of time when it comes to coloring, so by using a simple "color recipe" we have a handy and a quick tool to inspire us and get those creative juices going. The example above is one of those quick examples of applying color in a simple way and using basic shading.

When looking for color palette inspiration I mostly use Pinterest and look for color combinations that catches my eye. The above photo was my starting point when selecting my Copic Markers.


Purples: V12, V06, V17

Greens: YG23, YG13, G07

Oranges: YR16, YR04

Yellows: Y15, Y19

Peach, Pinks, Browns: R22, R02, E21, E33, E13
