KWerner Challenge # 42

Kristina's Color Challenge this week reminds me of butterscotch..

I looked at the colors and thought of my alcohol inks. Butterscotch, Rust and Lettuce. I have used these colors together before and liked the effect. So I pulled them out to create a beautiful background color. (Side note: There are new colors out in the acohol inks from Ranger and they are on my list to get!)

Since I have done a card with similar colors I wanted to do something different for the flowers. I use a light yellow embossing powder and was really pleased with the effect.

  • Ranger Alcohol Inks - Butterscotch, Lettuce, Rust
  • Versamark Watermark Ink
  • Light Yellow Embossing Powder
  • Magenta - 09150M
  • Verses - Kiss of the Sun
  • Martha Stewart Ribbon
  • K&Company & Kaisers Gemstones

Thanks for stopping by...
