KW Colour Inspiration #35


Here's my card for this weeks colour challenge over on Kristina's blog. I based the layout on Lauren's sketch, though as always I have made changes. Initially I struggled with this colour combo as I had done something very similar before, and I didn't want it to seem like I was just re-hashing that card! Initially I intended using more stamps from the Petal Prints set, but in the end just went with the leaves and opted for flowers from the Pretties Kit so it was a bit more textural. Keeping with the textural theme I broke out an old favourite, the Linen background, and stamped it on Sofy Sky using the matching ink.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky, Close To Cocoa
Stamp Sets: Petal Prints, Linen
Inks: Close To Cocoa, Soft Sky
Accessories: Chocolate Chip 1" double-stitched ribbon, Soft Sky double-stitched ribbon, Theater Ribbon Originals, Pretties Kit, aquapainter, So Saffron marker, Soft Sky "marker" (washed out marker + refill), Sage Shadow marker, mini glue dots, dimensionals
