Bella Toile

I just love Bella Toile and combining it with my favorite current In Color, Calypso Coral, makes me happy. This card is for two challenges this week - Friday Mashup to use Versamark Resist and also Create with Connie & Mary which was a sketch challenge.

Again, I used the Color Coach for my color combo - those people at Stampin' Up! sure know how to combine colors!  I would never have thought of putting these three colors together, yet they work.


I stamped Bella Toile on Whisper White with Versamark, then sponged over the top with Calypso Coral to reveal the stamped image underneath.  I made some DSP flowers using the Boho Blossoms Punch and mounted them onto the card with dimensionals.

Here is the sketch:



Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Bella Toile; Petite Pairs
Cardstock:  Baja Breeze; Whisper White; 2011-13 In Color DSP; Brights DSP
Ink:  Versamark; Calypso Coral
Accessories:  Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon; Boho Blossoms Punch; Big Shot Tags Die; Wide Oval Punch

Cheers

I think the color coach is one of those items we don't really take advantage of...I've never been steered wrong with a color combo when using it. I like this colors...bright and fun! Great little card you could reproduce and just pop on a greeting when you needed one. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge this week!
