I'm thrilled I stayed up late to finish my entry for CeeCee's Color Challenge #9. This week she chose one of my all-time favorite color combinations. How could I not play along? Entrants were to combine certainly celery, old olive, very vanilla, taken with teal and cool caribbean. (I still wish SU would bring back cool caribbean!)
I was inspired by the prints in the sample pieces and so I pulled out my new Papertrey Guidelines stamp set to create my own patterned paper. I stamped the design onto the cream cardstock using the other four challenge colors. Then I matted it to taken with teal stock that was layered on top of certainly celery cardstock. The base itself is cool caribbean and after stitching the cream layer I wrapped it in SU old olive grosgrain ribbon. A Bazzil blossom was decorated with some circles punched from cardstock and the sentiment is from Papertrey's Mixed Messages set. To balance the thickness of the ribbon I adhered the blossom using foam dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by!
Until next time...M
