KWerner Colour Challenge #38


I've managed to take up another challenge offered by Kristina Werner. I was a bit dubious about using these colours together but once I started to mix and match with cardstock and paper, it all fell into place.

Here is the card I created using the new Sale-A-Bration stamps - (if you like this card and want to try making it yourself, contact me for the brochure which features these beautiful stamped images).

For this card I used the Ruby Red as the base and stamped the beautiful corner flourish onto some DS paper. This was then matted on Ruby Red and Pretty in Pink cardstock.

The scalloped flower was made by stamping the image in Ruby Red onto pink and white polka dot DS paper then punching it out with the Scallop Circle punch.

The greeting was stamped in Ruby Red on Whisper White card then punched out using the large oval punch. I added red adhesive gems to the heart and the flower centre for a bit of bling.

I also added 3 more gems at the top of the card to co-ordinate with the main elements.

The striped DS paper was punched with the scallop border punch. I sponged the edges of this piece of paper, the oval greeting and the flower with Ruby Red ink to define them.

SU Supplies -

Cardstock: Ruby Red, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White

Stamps: Yummy, Polka Dot Punches - both from the 2009 Sale-A-Bration brochure

Ink: Ruby Red

DS Papers: Pumpkin pattern from the Bali Breeze set, Pink striped paper from the Petals and Paisley set

Punches: Scallop Circle, Scallop Border, Large Oval

Extras: Self-adhesive gems

It's fun doing these challenges as you stretch your mind to sometimes think outside of the square and use colours that you never thought would work together. You are usually surprised when you've finished !

Well, that's it for now. Come back again soon to see what else I have up my sleeve to show you ........

Thanks for stopping by.
