Kristina's Color Challenge # 37

Kristina's Challenge http://kwernerdesign.com/blog/2009/01/color-inspiration-37.html is from these pencils....

What wonderful colors... I decided to pull out some die cuts and layer different shapes. I started with circle card. This actually is 2 circles and I folded the back circle a little and attached it to the front to make a card. (A tip picked up from Lisa S) I then used several other shapes. The butterfly is stamped using pigment ink on vellum. The butterfly is embossed using Ranger Distress Embossing powder (Vintage Photo). I love it as it leaves a beautiful texture which actually emulates the texture on a butterflies wings.

  • Floradoodles - Flowers (I love how realistic the texture is on these flowers.)

  2. I love this color combo but haven't had a chance to try it yet myself. You did a terrific job incorporating every one of the colors. And how neat to layer lots of different shapes.
