KW Colour Inspiration #49
Woohoo! It's been a while since I have had a chance to work on one of Kristina's colour challenges straight away, and they were nice strong colours this week. I teamed the colours with last weeks Weekend Sketch Chellenge, once again I played a bit footloose and fancy free with the sketch. I know I have said it before, but I use sketches as a starting off point and if the end result doesn't follow the sketch to the pixel so be it, as long as it got me going I am happy. I've used Petal Pizzazz again, I'm really loving the shapes of these flowers (I initially got it as a replacement for Bodacious Bouquet but I'm starting to love it in it's own right). I've also broken out another new set - On Your Birthday, which is another one I bought purely to replace another retiring set (It's Your Birthday). I feel there is a bit more variety in the sayings with this set so I can see I'll probably end up liking it in it's own right too! The other new things on this card are the Kiwi Kiss striped grosgrain, and the Pewter Build-a-brad for the top flower center (insanely easy to use).
And I've finally remembered to upload my third card for the Elite blog, another card that uses Petal Pizzazz.
