Watercolour Blackberry Bliss and Butterflies

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Watercolour Blackberry Bliss and Butterflies

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Watercolour Blackberry Bliss and Butterflies Flying

Ah the sad time when we have to say goodbye to much loved colours. Yes, the In Colours for 2014-2016 are leaving us very soon. And that makes me sad. I’ve adored Blackberry Bliss and Lost Lagoon in particular.

The thing with colours that are retiring is that we leave it too late to stock up. So although these are meant to last for another 6 weeks, if past years are anything to go by, that’s not going to happen.

So here’s a showcase of the 5 colours that are leaving us. Click here to see them close up

Anyway, today’s card is showing off the fabulous Blackberry Bliss up against a backdrop and butterfly accent of Tip Top Taupe. Which ironically is one of the In colours that’s staying on for another year!

I love the watercolour look and this is a great way to show how pretty this colour is.

Hope you like it!
