Hand Knit 04634
Well…today’s Color Challenge  (CC497) is certainly challenging! I doubt that in a million years I would have ever put these color together. So they were definitely a challenge. The other challenging part is that I don’t own these colors (other than a vanilla) so I had to sub with what I had. I do have samples of these colors, so mine are pretty close..which is good since I couldn’t even find any dp in my neglected stash that used these colors. The vanilla doily was already die cut (from another project that didn’t get used) so at least I was ahead w/ that. For the blackberry-like bg, I stamped a pattern that reminded me of a quilt pattern w/ the elderberry ink on top. The yarn and basket were stamped w/ combos of the elderberry & plum inks then die cut.

The greeting is actually a combo of two that I put together then punched w/ a tag punch. A bow w/ just the right color of thread spool button on top was added w/ the tag. The narrow yellow ribbon was colored w/ a Copic to match.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

    Beautiful, Julie! Love the yarn stamped in the purple color. I never would have thought to do that and it actually shows the yarns better! Wonderful design and very creative! Hugs!
