Blogger's Challenge #95: Color Challenge

OOOOOH! Lisa picked a WINNING combination of colors this week. I thought it was going to be good but it was just a pretty combination when I took out the four colors of cardstock and was wowed by looking at plain, unstamped cardstock! Now, what do with that...didn't think you'd appreciate my "empty" cardstock as much as I did so I did stamp something!

Here's the combo: Always Artichoke, Sage Shadow, Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip! GORGEOUS! Seriously, take out some scrap cardstock and those colors and I dare you to not like it!



I love the damask image in the Friends 24-7 and love it as a repetitive pattern. With the help of my handy-dandy Stamp a Majig, I created this double-image pattern in the Always Artichoke and Sage Shadow and using a tiny little image from One of a Kind stamp set and my Chocolate Chip ink, I connected the pattern together. The tag focal image is actually one of the dies from the new Matchbox Bigz XL Die from the Occasions Mini catty...Spend $40 from this little catty and pick a free stamp set from page 208 in the Spring/Summer catty! The sentiment is from the Friends 24-7 set.



Thanks for looking! Feel free to play along and be sure to see what the other challenge players were up to this week!
