Tangelo Twist with a Wink of Stella

I'm back with another retiring 2015 In Color, this time Tangelo Twist! (If you missed my Blackberry Bliss post you can find it here)

Tangelo Twist is a rich deep shade of orange, quite bright, but with depth of colour. It makes a great accent colour, adding pop to any project, but also works well as a main feature. I particularly like pairing it with Very Vanilla, the warmth of the cream works perfectly with this shade of orange. (You can also find this combination in the Sweet Lil Things suite of products)

For this card I have used the Tangelo Twist Stampin' Write Marker to colour the rose image from the Rose Wonder stamp set.

Did you know- you can achieve a shaded effect using just 1 Stampin' Write marker. Simply layer the colour on to areas you want darker, such as parts of the petal that would naturally be in shadow. You can apply 3-4 layers of marker, but be careful not to add too many, as your paper will begin to "pill" or ball up, particularly if you are using regular cardstock. The markers preform better on watercolour paper, shimmer cardstock or extra thick cardstock.

I have added some clear Wink of Stella to the petals to give them a shimmering finish. I really like how subtle the glitter is... but its so hard to photograph!! The leaves are coloured using the Mossy Meadow Stampin' Write Marker.

As previously mentioned, the 5 2014 In Colors retire at the end of this month, and once they are gone there will be no more products made in these colors. So stock up now (particularly on markers, ink refills and ink pads) as these items tend to sell out fast!

I will be featuring all of the retiring colours before the end of the month, so pop back soon! Em
