Color Inspiration #28
This is my entry for Kristina's color Inspiration challenge #28 .
I was not crazy about the colors when I orginally saw them but I decided to take the challenge anyways. I started with SCS sketch 196. The butterfly stamp Butterfly Border Horizontal is from Lasting Impressions With Panache. I stamped the image on hot press watercolor paper with Versamark and then heat embossed it with fine black embossing powder. When I was done with that I did the Marker Wash technique on the butterflies from the Oct/Nov07 Technique Junkies newsletter using SU markers in the challenge colors.
I used my Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder on the Rose Red and Sage Shadow pieces then finished the card off with three silver brads. Finished size is 41/4x51/2. Now that the card is finished I am starting to like the colors together better now. Thanks for the challenge Kristina!
