Colour Challenge #11

Here is this weeks colour challenge by the extremely talented Kristina Werner.

The colour combination was Whisper White, Rose Red, Old Olive, So Saffron and Going Grey. At first glance it looks like quite an easy combination... but it was a little more difficult than I had hoped. I knew what I wanted to do.... but that didn't work, so after putting it all away for a while and then going back to it... I FINALLY came up with something.

Here it is:-

I used a sheet of Textured Going Grey Cardstock as the base, then used my Scallop Circle Punch to cut out 3 Whisper White flowers. The centre of the flowers was done by using my circle punch and the DSP in Rose Red. I used my So many Sayings stamp set (which in now individually mounted... thanks to my WONDERFUL Dad!!!!) and stamped them in Old Olive and So Saffron. The butterfly is from another Hostess Set... Time Well Spent and I coloured it using my Blender Pens and Old Olive, Rose Red and So Saffron Ink Pads. The strip of paper at the bottom is from the Palete 'o' Prints in So Saffron and finished off with Whisper White Ribbon (taffeta) and the stems of the flowers are done by cutting a thin piece of Old Olive card stock so that it curled.

The flowers and butterfly are popped up on dimensionals. Here's a closer pic so you can see up close:-

Actually on close inspection... you can't really see it can you??? SORRY!!!

Anyway I hope you like what I've created.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
