Dynamic Duos #59!

Okay, I've been hoarding again. What am I hoarding? New stamps I've had for awhile that haven't been exposed to ink yet. I'm using one of those such sets today for the Dynamic Duos Challenge. If you visit Dynamic Duos today, you will see a variation of colors because we all started with Basic Gray and could add whatever color choice we wanted for our 2nd color. Kinda neat huh? Here is the color swatch for you:

I opted to add Cherry Cobbler and yes, this is my beloved hoarded, neglected stamp set:


I just "had to have it" and purchased this stamp set sometimethis past year because I think the feather images are adorable. I picked it off of my shelf and made myself ink it! And yes, all four feathers were fussy cut with my Paper Snips! I stamped the splotchy image first on Whisper White Cardstock and embossed the cardstock using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder:

Make sure to visit us at Dynamic Duos to give you inspiration for what other colors you can use with gray......because of course, anything goes with gray! Have a great weekend!
