KWerner Color Challenge #52


My first impression of the colors for the color inspiration challenge was "Oh no - FIVE colors"! I sometimes struggle when I get too many colors going on, and so I really took my time and just let the creativity flow. I pulled out the papers, perused my stamp collection, and put some of my stash away that had buried my desk.

I settled on using my Papertrey Ink "Life" stamp set. I also knew I wanted to use the So Saffron ribbon from this past Sale-a- bration. The clincher came when I found a 12 x 12 sheet of Sahara Sand in an old Simply Scrapping kit. I thought I only had the ink - talk about limitations! I matted the main image with Baja Breeze, it is a lot more apparent IRL. In the end I was happy with what I created, which is my goal any time I sit down to make a card. Hope you enjoy it too! Off to see what you all have created!


Supplies:
Cardstock: Stampin Up

Really nice job. I'm always intrigued at how everyone gets all the colors in! It really looks nice. Now I have another idea for my Life set. :-)
