Color idea book

Last summer, I finally bought my rubicoil. I had drooled over it for over a year! I bought it from here: I had to try it out as soon as I got it and decided to make a little book to put my color ideas in. If I see a color layout that I love, I put the colors in my book. When I want to try something new and fun, I look in my book. Well I have never showed anyone my book. Here it is! I was a dork and didn't buy mixed bouquet when it was in the mini catalog! LOL! I waited for the new catty and prayed it would be in there. When it was it was the first thing I bought. I used my new in colors for the book. Cranberry crisp is at the top. I stamped with cranberry crisp ink and very vanilla craft. The next layer is from the Spring flowers collection of paper. I sponged some cranberry crisp ink on it. The next layer is true thyme with the bouquet wheel that matches the set. I used versamark ink to wheel it on and used iridescent ice ep to emboss it. I then used my Stampin'Up! tool kit to pierce the paper on the top and bottom. For the final layer I used the cranberry crisp cs and used my beautiful new paisley bg stamp that I had purchased first in the new catalog as well! I inked it up with the vanilla craft ink and then heat set with my heat tool. I sponged some true thyme ink over it to age it. I also had to use my new chipboard letters! Love the chipboard! I inked it with cranberry crisp and stamped the paisley bg stamp in true thyme, finishing it by sanding the edges. I used the A to Z accents to do the true thyme background in my hodgepodge frame. I used my classic alph. to stamp color in cranberry crisp. I stamped my flower in cranberry crisp and then water colored it with ink from the lid. I inked it in versamark and then used iridescent ice ep to emboss it. I used embroidery thread to sew it on. Stampin'Up! ribbon finishes off the look! Wow I wrote a book! Enjoy!
