color inspiration...


Ok...last post for today...promise!! I told you I had a few! :) I made this one also last night when I was up. I made this one for the Color Inspiration Challenge over at Kristina's blog. I love her color challenges...she always has the greatest pics for inspiration. I thought this one might be hard cuz I hardly ever use sahara sand and the colors were pretty neutral...but it turned to be easier than I anticipated. The one thing I did on this card that I was pretty proud of was...I used my versamarker with my color spritzer and spritzed the sahara sand paper and then used clear embossing paper to make it stand out a little more. I am sure that someone else has also thought to use their versamarker in their spritzer but I didn't read it anywhere...it came from my own little head! I stamped the flowers from the embrace life set all over the white...(I would say randomly but I used my stamp-a-ma-jig so that it was evenly random)...I know it's the OCD in me!! Then I added some punched flowers for a little dimension.
Ok...you have heard enough from me today!! Have a great weekend!! Thanks for coming by and all the nice comments have been so great...thanks!

Your card is very pretty. Look forward to seeing yours again with Kristina's next challenge. I think I've missed the last 3, just a lot going on right now. Hopefully I'll be able to participate next time.
