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.
