My Grandmother's Couch


I kid you not, the color of this couch is the exact color of my grandmother's couch. Green. It was in the same place forever, I sure because it was so heavy. I remember it well, because for years it was also in my sisters house(also in the same place forever).
My grandmother had a style for bold colors and could always make something match, sorta like these red pillows.
This is my card for this weeks Color me Monday Challenge. Be sure to go by Jeanette's Blog and see all of her really nice projects with the color combo.







For the circle pillow I used a scrap chipboard circle with a brad through it. I also used the piercing tool to add a few lines to it. The stamp set comes with a oval circle, that I stretched out on the block to create the rug. One of the many benefits of clear unmounted stamps is the ability to reshape them.
Supplies from CTMH-Emporium pattern paper, New England Ivy textured CS, Colonial White CS, Desert Sand CS, Cranberry CS, New England Ivy ink, Desert sand ink, sweetleaf ink, cranberry ink, pewter bitty brads, foam tape, blending pen, chipboard circle, Welcome home stamp set

How cool that you were able to recreate that couch! And that you even thought to try it in the first place. Your creativity is amazing.

Great job!

hi there bros. I'm honestly into shoes and I had been looking as far as something that meticulous model. The prices for the shoes were around 240 dollars on every site. But definitively I set this area selling them as a remedy for half price. I really want those [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely order those. what can you tell me about these?

good afternoon ppl. I'm actually into shoes and I was digging for that particular make. The prices seeking the velcros are about 330 bucks on every site. But definitively I base this area selling them for the benefit of half price. I absolutely love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will probably purchase those. what can you say about it?
