Bloggers Challenge 35 – Color Combo – Purely Pomegranate, Brilliant Blue, and Old Olive

This week’s Bloggers Challenge was a color combination, which is always interesting since they’re never combinations I would choose.  We were to use Purely Pomegranate (one of this year’s In Colors), Brilliant Blue, and Old Olive.  I pulled out my patterned paper, cause that always makes color combos easier for me.  I started to panic when my old standby, Basic Grey, wasn’t coming through for me!  Come on, those funky color combos always work!  NOT!


So, I saw a sorely neglected DCWV mat stack (Glitter Stack) in the corner of my paper pad basket, and thought to myself, "uumm, maybe…".  Sure enough-I found a print that was "close enough" and went to work.  Patterned paper always inspires me.  I stamped Old Olive with Purely Pomegranate Classic ink® using one of the scallop stamps from the So Many Scallop stamp set (one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration103_0332  sets!), and punched it out with my scallop punch (sound familiar?  yes, I did that yesterday too…).  I used the corner rounder punch for the Old Olive card stock and DCWV print, and layered them.  I added some Ice Stickles to the Purely Pomegranate circle that I used a Nestibilities circle die to cut, and also to the stamped image.  A Purely Pomegranate double-stitched ribbon bow and final assembly, and another Bloggers Challenge conquered!
