Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #49


When I first saw Kristina's colours this week, I didn't think I was up to the challenge:


But after a successful Easter Egg Hunt yesterday I was feeling pretty much up to ANYTHING! ;-).

I pulled out the colours last night...and put together the base while I was watching Bones (it'll be a NEW episode next week...YAHOOOOOO!!!!!!!). I couldn't work out what the main image or sentiment was going to be though so I went to bed a bit disheartened. When I got up this morning I decided on chipboard and glitter...and this is what I came up with:


Ingredients (all from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Cardstock: Basic Black (textured), Whisper White (textured), Kiwi Kiss and Rose Red
Ink: Rose Red and Pacific Point Classic Ink
Accessories: Patterns Designer Series Paper in Pacific Point and Kiwi Kiss, Fine Supernova Stampin' Glitter in Pink and Aqua, Chipboard (retired), Pigtails Ribbon Originals, Chit Chat Rub-ons, Crimper, Tombow Multipurpose Adhesive, Dimensionals and SNAIL adhesive.


Thanks for looking. Gotta run now, we are going for a bushwalk!

Sam.

I was a bit scared about these colours at first too...but they do go together beautifully! I love what you've done with them...your card is just gorgeous! and I think I might need that glitter now that I've seen how pretty it looks on a project :)

This is so clean and crisp. Its a great card... I haven't plucked up enough courage for these KW challenges yet. Plus I'm so monochromatic as to be a bit boring!! Love your photography too. Talented lady.

I like this card very much, especially that you took what could have been a really difficult color palette and made it very fresh and fun looking!
