Kristina's Colour Challenge #57

Happy Sunday!!! Hope you've been enjoying your weekend. Today... well today here in Perth we've been given a NICE cool change... phew... it's been wee bit hot, however.... it's just a tease... this week is going to be a HOT one.

I can't even tell you how excited I was when I saw THIS Colour Inspiration Challenge from Kristina... I know, I know... it's just a one off one, but still very VERY EXCITEMENT!!!!

I thought I was going to struggle with this one, well OK I DID struggle with this one. WHY???... Well... you know how we all have some particular colours that we can never, ever, EVER seem to get to do what we want... well this here challenge had a couple of those said colours for me. One of those being Cameo Coral (*waving at ya Sair... I know you'll work wonders with it ;o)).. and More Mustard... actually Yellow.. never ever seem to get that one right.. hahaha.

Anyhoo.... never fear, I wasn't going to let my fears get the better of me, and I can quite comfortably say that I've gone HEAD FIRST with the Cameo Coral as you're about to see... forget about baby steps... this is one HUGE GIANT step!!!

Here's my card

And here is the Colour Inspiration pic that Kristina gave us.... GOtta LOVE those fabrics.:-

I've use Cameo Coral as the Base... I KNOW!!!!! then stamped my image from Framed with Love in Riding Hood Red. I added a piece of Whisper White which I punched using my FABULOUS Apron Lace Punch and added some Baja Breeze Ribbon. I made my flower using Whisper White and So Saffron and added my Mustard contribution in the form of a Button in the centre. The sentiment is from my Sweet Little Sentiment set and is stamped in Cameo Coral ( I told you!!) .
So there you go.. hope you like.

Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to pop back later for this weeks AWESOME Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Sweet Little Sentiment, Framed with Love
Card:- Cameo Coral, Whisper White, So Saffron

Ink:- Riding Hood Red, Cameo Coral

Accessories:- Baja Breeze Ribbon, More Mustard Button, Linen Thread, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Apron Lace Punch (Fiskars)

I really love the simple layout of your card. Have been stamping only for a few months, and still have a long way to go. Thanks for the inspiration:)
