Color Coordinates: Manly!


Happy Friday everyone!!! It’s Shari here with yet another Color Coordinates. I finally put together a great set of colors perfect for the men in your life. These colors will work from young teen to adult.

I’ve kept my card simple with no frills by using hexagons from the Perfect Shapes Stamp set and my five colors of ink: WillowCaribbean BlueFossilOrange Peel and Sparrow.

Color Coordinates 8.26.16

I’ve stamped the 4 different sizes of hexagons in each ink color, cleaning off the largest one to get another colors in. I ended up stamping extra pieces to fill in here and there.

I also die cut the Painted Thanks twice and glued them together to create a sturdy piece that I could suspend across the color hexagons.
