KWerner Color Challenge #46


The baby blue, red, and black mixed with shades of pink....what can I say I love these colors! This Kwerner color inspiration just screams PTI's Retro Background. This set is so versatile and definitely has to be the most used stamp set from my collection. I made the background by stamping the stripes with the blue, pinks, red, and black at random intervals and in no particular pattern. I thought this gave the card a more funky vibe. The scalloped edge and patterned paper background is raised off of the black to add a little dimension (this is a little hard to see in the photo).

And the close-up....

Supplies:

Paper: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Ridinghood Red, and Very Vanilla cardstock (SU!)
Ink: Basic Black, Bashful Blue, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, and Ridinghood Red Classic Ink (SU!)
Stamps: Stripes (Papertrey Ink), Sentiment (Hero Arts)
Extras: Tag Die (Sizzix exclusive for SU!), Scallop Border Punch (Fiskars), Ribbon and embroidery floss.
