Mustang Monday presents Tip Top Taupe

This week we are meeting up with Tip Top Taupe, another of the brand new 2015-2017 In-Colors. Below is the in-color bookmark that I made last week along with the coordinating ink pad and marker. 

While this is so not my favorite of the neutral colors, I did take the time to do a color comparison, like last week.  I compared it to several of our neutral colors and one of the regal colors, Always Artichoke.  And finally I compared it to the recently retired, but never forgotten Baked Brown Sugar - which was one of my favorites of the recently retired in colors.

I must apologize for the quality of my comparison image... it is so difficult to take photos late at night, but my schedule was quite busy this weekend and that's when I was able to find the time to photograph. Thank the Lord for photoshop... without it I would be in deep doo-doo.  

I also created a simple masculine card - as to me, that's what Tip Top Taupe will best be used for. Soft browns make good roughing up colors - so that your projects look a bit more rustic.  I used a sponge dauber to add a bit of roughing up to my card.

If you have the new in-colors to play with, I'd love to see what you come up with using Tip Top Taupe.  Go ahead, create a card and comment back the link where you shared it. Have fun!

  1. I've really missed out on a lot of great new colors. The only neutral SU ink color I have is Creamy Caramel. Shows you how old my stuff is. Thanks so much for doing and sharing this color comparison. Really helps an oldie like me.

  2. Great card- I love that saying- I learned it on my first nursing job- opening up oxygen tanks- and closing them back up! Great neutral color- and thank you for the great comparison chart!

  3. I love the Taupe! It's a great addition to the colour palette.
