I want to make a hummingbird to match my bathroom decor, I found the cut I want but I need some non standard colors just a sheet or two of a seafoam green baby blue or chocolate brown or aqua color. I own the garden pond collection at Kohls and am in love with it and want to decorate the spot above my toilet with the hummingbird and a saying. Any ideas on where to purchase these off colors of vinyl?

Thanks Danielle

Have you thought about just making YOUR OWN custom colors? I use Square 1 material for all of my vinyl projects . . . Square 1 is an adhesive backed material that works just like vinyl. They sell a printable product that you can place in your home printer. Then you can just fill a word document with the colors you want, print, and have a custom colored sheet. I did that for this project . . . for the flesh tone that I used for the main paper doll.



I did a blog post about how I did this at http://craftychicsblog.b.../2012/10/tinkerbell.html

Thanks I ordered a sample pack from Expressions so hopfully they will have something to match.
As for printing my own, I have a lazer printer and havent had good luck with that ink sticking on much anything other than paper, it powders too much and in a bathroom Im afraid the humidity would make the ink run, not too sure about that
