Colour Combo Inspiration #2… and a Ribbon Tip

Published by under colour combo

Colour Combo Cards: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Calypso Coral


This week I've been playing with a new fun colour combo, featuring three of the five new "In Colors".

Colour Combo: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Calypso Coral

Island Indigo               Pool Party           Calypso Coral


I'm loving Island Indigo. Gorgeous. And I think it partners beautifully with Pool Party

Just a hint of Calypso Coral finishes the trio today, but I'd love to try the two blues with maybe Regal Rose or even Poppy Parade. I'll add that to my To Do list!


Congratulations card



Ribbon Tip:

Try adding ribbon in loops behind your flowers. They add a whole new dimension to the flower, and can also highlight one of the colours in your project.

In this card, we've looped the Calypso Coral ruffled ribbon behind one of the flowers from Posy Punch (p9 IBC). The ribbon is secured with Mini Glue Dots (p144).

Have fun going a bit loopy with ribbon!


Happy stamping,
