6/25 KW Color Inspiration Challenge





WOW! What totally awesome colors . . . and Kristina Werner challenged us to incorporate them into a card!! And, I did! These are the colors she challenged us to use: Purely Pomegranate, Regal Rose, River Rock, Wild Wasabi, and Whisper White.

I knew I had some designer paper floating around that would be a great match for what I had in mind. The paper is from a 6"x6" pack called Perhaps by Basic Grey. I found every one of the colors represented in the two sheets I used. Then, it was just a matter of coming up with a design. For that I turned to the sketch challenge at SCS.

I am thrilled with the way this card turned out. I used my Cuttlebug and Vintage dies to make the corner accents as well at the antennae on the butterfly. To give the card a little more of an elegant feel, I took a piece of vellum, tore it an angle and sponged Wild Wasabi onto it to tint it green. All of the stamps that I used on this card are retired, but I didn't have to dig far. Just yesterday I had Nature's Secrets out and was browsing the gallery over at SCS to see what would inspire me. I am glad I stumbled across Kristina's blog this morning. It pepped me up quicker than a cup of coffee!! You can be sure that I'll be exploring more of her color challenges in the future!

Supplies I used to create this card:

Stamps: All Retired SU: Nature's Secret, Hand Stitched Background on WW panel behind the butterfly image.
Paper: River Rock Textured for the card base, Wild Wasabi, Purely Pomegranate, Whisper White, Perhaps 6x6 paper pad from Basic Grey, Vellum
Ink: Wild Wasabi
Accessories: Cuttleug with Vintage Dies, Dimensionals, Sponge

Okay! How pretty is this! I have a thing for butterflies, so of course I ADORE this card. And how clever of you to use the pieces one would normally throw away from a die cut for antennae!
