A Sample for Color Throwdown #7...

As I was making the Color Throwdown #7 combo swatch I was totally thinking about how the new GWP TG-3514 Floral would work PERFECTLY with it...so this morning, I got up and started playing around. I pulled out some papers that I thought would match (well, the grayish brown was as close as I could get to the third taupe color without going shopping!), the inks and the Copic Marker...

Here's what I created: 

Stamps?  I selected the GWP TG-3514 Flower for my main image and the sentiment is from T3490 Love Lines.  I think that's my MOST FAVORITE SENTIMENT SET from this catalog. 

Paper?  The card base was some cream cardstock I had lying around.  I think I got it when Recollections (part of Michael's) was going out of business.  It's a great formal card base.  I also used some Ivory Ultrasmooth cardstock to stamp my image on and to mat under the grayish brown.  Oh, that grayish brown color is from the DCWV neutrals stack. 

Inks?  I pulled out my Tuxedo Black and Dandelion Memento ink.  The Copic Marker used was Y17 Golden Yellow.  I also used Ranger Burlap just a tad on the edges of the distressed frame. 
Tools?  Nestabilities Long Rectangles were used to create a mask for distressing with the yellow and with stamping within the boundary. 

Ribbon?  OK...Black...from Michaels cheapo ribbon section!

I love this color combo so much and I WILL be making many more cards with it.  After I pick up the PERFECT color for the #3 taupe color I will be back to show another inspiration sample!
