Hello Lovely: Let's Talk Skin tones

 Hello Crafters! 

I hope you're having a wonderful weekend! 

I've been hustling to get some videos together for you guys while I'm taking a mini break. 
I'm not sure I even remember how to enjoy uninterrupted time anymore, but I'm sure my hubs will be happy to see me.  When I'm not hanging with the hubby I am looking forward to taking some classes I've signed up for but never have the time to complete. 
Yay for learning new things!

Speaking of new things I try to pay attention to the things you guys request here on the blog and over on my Youtube. One of the things that has come up a few times is different skin tones. 
A lot of us crafters tend to color solely Caucasian skin tones. I'm just as guilty as the next guy. 
But, since you requested it I've had it in the idea bin waiting for the right stamp set to come along. 

Guess what? 
It's here.


I was blessed to receive some products from my friend Tiffany who is the owner of Ink Blot Shop. She is celebrating her one year anniversary with this release. As an added bonus she is selling the Tiny Bubbles stamp set for only $5 and will have single rolls of washi tape for only $1. 

(Sale prices valid only 8/4/2017 - 8/13/2017 or while supplies last. No coupon code necessary - all sale prices are as marked.) Today is the last day of the sale so act quick if you're interested. 



The Hello Lovely set includes seven different girls with several faces you can mix. I can't imagine another stamp set that would be more perfect to talk about multiple skin tones! 

It's another long one guys but I'm hoping the information included makes up for it.
You can watch the whole card below


I love how the rainbow background ties all the girls together beautifully. It just proves that a rainbow background is never a bad idea :) 


I hope you guys learned as much as I did about how to combine colors to get the look you want. Each one of these girls is unique and beautiful. How fun would it be to color up a card that looks like you and your girlfriends? Or your sisters? or your daughters? I love how endless the combinations are! 

Thanks so much for visiting!
