Stamp-a-Faire - Mixing Colours: For you

For this challenge, Dawn challenged us to mix colours we might not usually mix or use.  I grabbed an old favourite I haven't used for a while, Round Repeats, and chose some colours from the Fresh Ink and Avery Elle pigment shades I have: Mint to Be, Pool, Sugar Plum and Turquoise.
I took a 110lb white Recollections wine bottle tag die cut and started stamping the various colours directly across from each other.
 I love this set because it is so simple but so versatile.  I wanted to make a wine tag for a card set I am gifting to someone.  They are such useful things to include in a set and so simple to make.
I did some selective stamping for the sentiment using the Hooray set - just a simple sentiment to make sure that the tag is versatile.
And here it is on a wine bottle just so you can see how it would look ... although this bottle is longer than most.  I got this in France when I was there - I've been to the vineyard in California but this is the original one back in Europe - Domaines Schlumberger.  Sooo delicious!

I am thankful to Dawn for pushing me to use colours I wouldn't usually use together ... it's always good to creatively stretch, right!
