KW Colour Inspiration #18

Mark your calendars, August 7th was the day for doozy colour challenges! I have no shame in admitting I struggled with Kristina's latest challenge, mainly because I kept looking at the inspiration photo and thinking Pink Passion would have made more pop than Rose Red (Shaelea, my 5 year old and Little Miss Pink, even asked me where the pink was after seeing the photo). Anyway, I finally got there with something I am reasonably happy with.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Basic Black, Summer Sun, Rose Red, Confetti White
Stamp sets: Time Well Spent, Scribble This
Ink: StazOn Jet Black, VersaMark, Pumpkin Pie & Rose Red for watercolouring
Accessories: black embossing powder, Aquapainter, Summer Sun marker, Cutter Kit, 1/16" circle punch, Fire Circle Rhinestone Brads, Pretties Kit, Rose Red marker, Pumpkin Pie marker, District Ribbon Originals, Dimensionals
Show watched while crafting: Dr Horrible's Sing-A-Long Blog (we like the wierd stuff)
