KWerner Colour Challenge # 49

Hi again,

As I mentioned in my previous posts, I've been busy making cards during the Easter break and here is another one.
Unfortunately, I just missed the deadline for Kristina Werner's challenge as I was out all day yesterday and when I tried to upload it this morning, it was too late.

It doesn't matter as I just love taking up these challenges for my own satisfaction.
I loved the colours in this one and immediately thought of using them with the flower stamps then while looking through my collection, I decided to add the bird and branch.

I mounted some Rose Red paper from the Designer Series Prints collection onto white card then onto the black base card. (I made a square card for a change as I thought it would suit the corner collection of flowers I wanted to use.)
The flowers were stamped in Rose Red and Pacific Point inks and the leaves in Kiwi Kiss ink.
I cut them out and mounted them using assorted 3D foam pads in different thicknesses.

The bird and branch were both stamped in black (to keep in line with the Challenge requirements) but I added leaves in Kiwi Kiss as a contrast and to tie in with the other leaves on the card.

The greeting is a rub-on from the set called 'A Perfect Day' .
I just love that striped Rose Red paper and now realise I should have bought another pack before it 'retired' - ah well, you live and learn!

SU supplies -
Cardstock - Basic Black, Whisper White.
Paper - Designer Series Prints (Rose Red)
Inks - Basic Black, Rose Red, Baha Breeze, Kiwi Kiss
Rub-ons - A Perfect Day set
Stamps - Eastern Blooms, Best Wishes and More, Cheep Talk, Always.

Thanks for dropping in - I hope you like my latest card. I had fun making it and have more ideas to try so stop by again to have another look at my latest work.

Come back soon :-)
