Color Inspiration Challenge


Kristina Werner has posted her 3rd Color inspiration challenge and I am so in on this one. My world is all in SU colors I tend to walk around and think to myself, oh that shirt is blush blossom or that towel is lovely lavender. Anyone else out there do that or am I just nuts? Anywho, this is what Kristina has done, taken a photo from Pier 1 and pulled out SU colors to match. The colors are Orchid Opulence, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black and White. I never would have just put those colors together, but I am glad this challenge forced me to. Here is what I came up using all 5 colors of card stock in the challenge. Fabulous Flowers, Baroque Motifs & Holidays & Wishes stamp sets using Pumpkin Pie classic ink with Rose Red marker high lighting the flower petals, white craft ink and basic black classic ink. I added a little rhinestone, which I picked up on clearance at Hobby Lobby to the center of the flower for a little sparkle.
Thanks for the challenge Kristina!
