Color Without Borders - Oh So Eclectic

Color Without Borders Oh SO Eclectic 4

It's the third Wednesday of the month so that means it's time for Color Without Borders Series.  My Border Buddy, Patsy Waggoner, and I each create a project using the colour palette of the month. This month feature some fun and bright colours including new colours Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, Gorgeous Grape and Lovely Lipstick.

  08-2018 Color Without Borders 08

I always challenge myself to use all the colours in the palette if I can and this month I managed to use them all except Lovely Lipstick. I pulled an Annual Catalogue set called Oh So Eclectic from my stampin' shelves and forgot how much I love this 2 step set.

I stamped the outer flower line in Gorgeous Grape and then stamped the bolder image in Highland Heather. These two colours go together beautifully! The ribbon is also Gorgeous Grape. The center of the flowers are Daffodil Delight and the leaves are Granny Apple Green.

If you haven't noticed the 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper on page 191 of the Annual Catalogue.  It comes in Brights, Regals, Subtles, Neutrals, 2018-2020 In Color and 2017-2019 In Color collections. The collections include 40 sheets, 2 each of 2 double-sided designs in 10 colours. I used the Highland Heather from the Subtles selection.
