Kristina's Color Inspiration #10

Inspiration photo

Here is my card for the color challenge that Kristina presented. This one was a little challenging fir me this time. I couldn't settle on what stamp set to use, how I wanted to arrange the colors etc. I knew I wanted to make a square card from the start. Once I picked the background paper from "Fall Flowers" (Stampin'Up) I was on a roll. I wanted to use the "Rock and Roll" technique to incorporate two colors of ink nicely and I had use a similar combo in the past and has great success. I {heart} this technique! I really wanted to use "Crystal Effects" on the card to make the "Rock and Roll" POP! I use the "Slit" punch to make the yellow scallops and trimmed the white card stock to frame the scallop. I also use my "Crop-A-Dile" to make the perfect holes for the brads and the fact that it was late last night and "Crop-A-Dile" is silent.


Hope you enjoy! 

If you look closely at the photos you can see I highlighted the flowers with "Crystal Effects". I also highlighted a few words from the sentiment and greenery on the card.
