Saturday Color Combo #3

I'll be perfectly honest and say this past week has been the longest most challenging week I've experienced in awhile.... At least it's Saturday I suppose... and when the going gets tough, the tough get scrappin'.... or something like that.

For this week, I put together a summery-floral inspired color combination. These colors remind me of my grandma's house in the summer-time, long summer days spent horseback riding and picking blackberries at the edge of the creek. Hopefully these colors will help you make something summer inspired!

The Color Combination:



Black Raspberry - Lilac - Ivory - Honeydew Green

The Inspiration:



and I actually made a LO for this week!





The raspberry color was a bit tricky for me, because I couldn't find the exact color that I wanted. I decided to take white seam binding, and hand-dye it twice to create a rich fuchsia/raspberry color. Then I looped and stitched the seam binding to create a little handmade flower. *Sometimes you have to think outside the box, and use what you have on hand.* Happy crafty Saturday!!

**If you make anything using this weeks color combination, I would love to see your creations! Just leave me a link! **

I love the colors and that flower you made is so cute ~ I love that you hand-dyed the seam binding to make it your own color! Fabulous idea :D The lime green goes with that color so well!!!!
