I have hovered on Kristina Werner's blog for the last couple of months, oohing and ahhing at her cards and everyone's creations for the color challenges. I decided that this was the week I would participate in the color inspiration challenge....then I saw the color combo. I fretted most of the day over how I was going to make a card that I liked...let alone loved! Once I got in my craft room I put my fears aside and pulled the paper and inks that were the corresponding colors and grabbed some stamps. Here is what I came up with:
Not too bad if I do say so myself. Once I stopped thinking about trying to use all the colors in large amounts and focused on making a fun card everything came together. The key was the ant stamp. Once I figured out I wanted to use the ant, the grass was the next logical thing to make. A gingham ribbon created a "picnic" sort of vibe, and so saffron anchored the design. Hope everyone likes it!
