KWerner Color Challenge #42

I realized today it had been a while since I posted something create, or even made something crafty. So, I vowed to take on the Kristina Werner challenge and get my butt in my craft room. This was a toughy!!! I looked at the More Mustard, Really Rust, and Kiwi Kiss and thought "what the heck am I gonna do with this...these colors are so over-powering together". I took a little inspiration from Randee (see her entry here) and used textured white as my base to help the colors mesh.

Here is Kristina's Inspiration:


I made a fun little easter card using a new Michael's $1 stamp, a SU! rub-on, and some wide, ruffled ribbon that I purchased a year ago when an indi-scrap store was closing : ( I decided to tone down the mustard by watercoloring.

Supplies:
Stamps: Studio g

Paper: SU! Kiwi Kiss, Really Rust and Whisper White cardstock
Ink: Black StazOn and More Mustard, Basic Gray, and Really Rust SU! Classic
Extras: Cuttlebug embossing folder, Marvvy Uchida Scallop Punch, Fishers 2" circle punch, Creative Memories circle cutter, Bag O' Buttons, SU! Rub-on (happy easter), White ruffly ribbon (unknown, but I got a good deal on it!)

Soo cute- gotta love bargains! Love the ribbon. Reminds me of the ruffle you'd find on a little girls Easter dress.

Very cute card! I love the polka-dots and the little birdie stamp. You know, I checked the $1 stamps at Micheals the last time I was there. I can never seem to find the cute ones that you and Janie find. Oh well...I'll just have to borrow yours! ;-)
