Refreshing Brocade

March 12, 2011 | 6 comments

The card I’m sharing with you for this post I’ve made for 2 challenges.

The first one is a colour challenge from Cards & Things Challenges and is Colour Challenge #69.

While trying to decide on a stamp set to use for this colour combination I remembered a ‘new to me’ Challenge site my good friend Meighan mentioned and that is SU Only Challenges. This week the challenge on their site is SUO Challenge #14 – Favourite Retired Stamp set.

I have a few retired stamp sets that I just don’t wish to part with, however I never seem to use them. Well this challenge fit perfectly to do just that.

So what set did I choose to use??

The gorgeous ‘Brocade Basics’ stamp set.

Most of the card is Marina Mist & Old Olive but there is a layer of Certainly Celery in there to fit with the Colour Challenge.

So is this one of your favourite retired sets too?

Stamp sets: Teeny Tiny Sentiments, Brocade Basics (retired)
Card: Marina Mist Certainly Celery, Old Olive, Whisper White
Ink: Old Olive, Marina Mist
Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Photo Corner Punch, Word Window Punch, Basic Jewels – Pearls.

Till next time….
