If you follow design news, you’ve probably heard about Pantone’s 2015 “Color of the Year” selection: Marsala. The company describes Marsala as, “A naturally robust and earthly red wine” that “make[s] for an elegant statement color…or as a compelling accent when paired with many other colors.”
If you like the color of the year, there’s good news: you can expect to see it pop up in fashion, beauty, fabrics, product packaging, and more. Some businesses find unique ways to capitalize on the trend; for example, Theo Chocolate has launched limited edition fair trade bars in Marsala-colored packaging.
Bring some Marsala into your crafting with our All-Purpose Ink in Sedona Clay. We stamped a Mark Richards wine bag (of course!) with All-Purpose Ink in Sedona Clay using a foam stamp. Heat set the bag, and the ink will remain permanent.
Or get your Marsala on with StazOn Solvent Ink in Claret. Among other ideas, it makes a great alternative to the ubiquitous pink or red on Valentine’s Day. (Stencil: The Crafter’s Workshop.)
