Dynamic Duos: Big HUGS from Big Tweet

This week's color challenge at Dynamic Duos is the Bold & Sassy combination of Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive.  I decided to stretch my comfort zone and take the "sassy" part of the challenge very seriously...


Big Hugs from Big Tweet


Isn't that guy absolutely charming?  I named him "Big Tweet!"  This came about because I won a set of stamps from The Alley Way Stamps.  Of course, I won one set but I managed to buy four others...funny how that works!! 

There is quite a variety of inspiration from the various members of the design team - this color combo can go SO many different ways!!  Check everybody out, then pull out your Razzleberry and Olive (or something close) and head back to  Dynamic Duos to post you card - we would LOVE to see what you come up with!



Remember the basic rules...1) Don't link to any other color challenges and 2) use ONLY these two colors + neutrals.

  • Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps Priceless Joy (the bird and "tweet"), Talk to Me (the speech bubble and "big") and Jibber Jabber ("hugs")
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Old Olive CS and Rich Razzleberry dsp and CS
  • Ink: black, Old Olive and Versamark
  • Accessories: white pen, Cuttlebug polka dot embossing, misc twine, cloud and scallop dies, Black Enamel Accents (his eyes with a little white dot)
