Color Combinations


The color combinations that are currently trendy please me.  I have always been an earth tone kind of person.  One of my favorite color combinations has been green and brown.  It started with a pair of Reebok highking boots in Jr. HS.  They were brown and green.  I called them my grasshopper shoes.  I loved them to pieces.  Literally I loved them to pieces.

The design is from Clearsnap ink and it is called Design Adhesive.  It is a sticker that you can either emboss, flock or glitter.  Probably even other things yet to be discovered.  The cute little box is from Scraponizer and makes a great favor. or a thank you gift.  For the flower I used a scallop die and cut petals in it.  I highlighted them with Pearl SMOOCH. Shellz button is from Bleumenthal Lansing

    Really nice combos, Niki.

    I’ve always hated blue and brown, and I just did my bedroom in those colors. But I’ve always loved green and brown. Hmmmmm, look what colors your blog happens to have!
