KWenerdesign Colour Inspiration #23


Kristina's Colour Inspiration # 23 was a real challenge for me this week. The colours are bravo burgundy, chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, so saffron and old olive. Three of these colours I've hardly ever used. The other two, chocolate chip & old olive I use all the time. So the challenge for me was how to combine these colours! It did take me a while.
Here it is.
I've inked around all the edgers straight from the ink pad. Coloured with a blender pen. I tried to do something interesting with the old olive ribbon. I don't know if it works, but it is different. Oh, and where's the bravo burgundy? On the tips of the flower. It's the only way I could think of to get that colour in there. Here's the recipe.
Recipe
Stamp Set : Oh, so Lovely
Ink : Choc Chip, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy
Card : Choc Chip, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron
Punch : 3/4" circle
Accessories : 5/8" grosgrain ribbon Old Olive, jumbo eyelet, blender pen, crop a dile, dimensionals
Thanks for looking!
