Challenge 3 from the Inklings Cyberstamp was a colour challenge. My orginal plan with this card was to follow Karen's Sweet Sunday sketch #22, so I started with the large circular element, since that is what I struggle most with. I have a tendancy to use the large Pretties Kit flowers for this, so for something different I went for the large Petal Pizzazz flower. I stamped and clear embossed my flower on Baja Breeze cardstock and had intended to put the Planter Box rub-on over top - but found out that the rub-on is bigger than the stamp! So I jsut put the rub-on on Baja Breeze cardstock and cut that flower out again! I was keen to do another button/brad (hmm... if only I had thought of that for the Benjamin Button Cinema Saturday challenge!) combination and thought that would work well for the flower centre, however it needed something else... A quick search found that this Boho Blossoms punchie was perfectly sized to go under the button, so I put that all together and had my flower done.
Fiona had mentioned the Urban Oasis paper when setting the colour challenge so I pulled that out and decided straight away I wanted to use the stripey Kraft coloured paper. I love Kraft, and I'm loving that we now have a few things that coordinate with it so I try to use them at every opportunity. I went through a few different arrangements with what colour to have where, but once I settled on the dark paper on the right it all fell into place. Basic Gray isn't listed as a colour in the Urban Oasis paper, but this particular sheet is like Basic Gray with Basic Black spots so it worked in well. The Short & Sweet font is a nice match for the loopiness of this Planter Box rub-on.
