Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act 18
This soothing color combination was inspired by the Potter's Choice Trivet at Antrhopologie. The floral earthenware was handcarved with a glossy finish of vivid greens and blues...so aquatic! I interpreted the colors as Stampin' Up!'s Night of Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White, Kraft & Ballet Blue.

Just For You
Today, I wish I would've had Night of Navy Craft ink so that my images would be darker...I guess some new Craft ink colors need to go on my next Stampin' Up! order if I'm going to be stamping on DSP more often:)
I randomly stamped using two different images from the True Friend stamp set onto Bella Bleu DSP with the Night of Navy ink, then attached some of those fabulous Ice Circle Rhinestone brads through the centers of the larger images. The Ballet Blue cardstock was punched with the Scallop Trim punch and adhered behind the main panel. The card base is Kraft cardstock with some retired Old Olive DSP covering the card front. The Old Olive grosgrain ribbon was wrapped around the entire card front and tied in a bow...then the sentiment stamped in Night of Navy with the Oval All stamp set was punched out using the Scallop Oval punch. After prying the brad prongs apart and popping the stones out, a little more bling was added to the sentiment tag with Mini Glue Dots.

Paper: Kraft, Ballet Blue CS, Bella Bleu & retired DSP
Ink: Night of Navy
