This Week's Color Combination

Here is this week's color combination, Always Artichoke and Groovy Guava. This week's sample is made with So Cool stamp set. I stamped the That's Random image on the Always Artichoke card stock. I filled it in with some of the images from the Stamp of Authenticity stamp set. Next, I stamped the Dude That is So Cool image in Groovy Guava. I then stamped it again in the Always Artichoke. I cut out the That is So Cool words in Always Artichoke and placed them on top of the Groovy Guava stamped image. Next I used my Coluzzle and cut the image out.

Next I took a strip of Groovy Guava that I crumbled up and then laid straight. I sponged on some Groovy Guava color to the strip. I then the bottom right hand corner and turned it up and cut a triangle of Groovy Guava and adhered it to the corner. I then crumbled and sponged up the corner and put a vintage brad through the center. The finishing touch was setting the jumbo pewter eyelets and tieing the Chocolate Chip Poly-Twill Ribbon. The poly-twill ribbon will be available in the new Occassions mini that will be out in the next couple of days. I love the texture of this ribbon. It also comes in the Old Olive color.

I wasn't really wow'd by this set and now with the samples you have made with it - I'm starting to change my mind! Great job!

I love how you used Groovy Guava. I think of it as a girly color, but you were able to make it look masculine.
