Oh, So Lovely

I love it when Kristina posts her color inspirations on a Wednesday...it means I actually have time to sit down and play (sometimes ;-).

This week's color inspiration colours are very beautiful:


My submission is only a simple card, but it took a good bit longer to make than I would have liked. I think my mojo is out visiting, but I kept going without it anyway:


The background cardstock is Ruby Red. I have stamped it with the crosshatch stamp in the 'Oh, So Lovely' stamp set. Then there are a whole bunch of layers, including a piece of cardstock vellum. The main image is also from the 'Oh, So Lovely' stamp set, and it has been stamped in Stazon onto Whisper White textured cardstock.

I have coloured the poppies using Stampin' Up! Watercolour Wonder Crayons. You will have to believe me when I tell you the stems of those poppies are Sage Shadow. I have also applied Crystal Effects to the flower heads.

Thanks for looking,
Sam.

And you Cirque cards are gorgeous too, especially that first one. Wish my abs looked like that too!

beautiful card, and the vellum I think really caps it off (which might sound odd, but it's funny how these things work some times!)
