Well, was I in for a shock last night. Never in my ENTIRE life, did I think that my hubby would say what he said to me yesterday. He is building a new house right now that he designed - Amazing, by the way - and was looking for colors since it is to the painting stage right now. This is what he said ...
"Since you know so much about color with stamping, could you match some papers together and come up with something nice?"
After 5 years, he has finally figured out that stamping can be used in EVERY situation - BWAHAHAHA!!
Here are the colors I came up with for him, and he went to the paint store this morning armed with pieces of CS, so he can match them up.
Sahara Sand, Mellow Moss, and Basic Grey.
I used copper hodge podge (retired), as the accent on the card. I think I am going to tell Russ that he should do the taps, hardware, and light fixtures with that, as well. The grass stamp is from Inspired by Nature and is stamped first in moss and then always artichoke for some depth. The card is also sponged with artichoke. The sentiment is from the Sweet Birthday stamp, but I used a marker for just the words.
I think the colors for the house will be calming and modern, but fairly neutral. Try a card with these colors and link back here for me to go and check it out. Tootles, have fun and happy stamping!!
