Color Inspiration.

Good Afternoon Everyone!
Two posts in one day! I wanted to get my card for KWerner's Color Inspiration posted before the deadline this evening. The challenge this week was to use red or pink as the main color and then any other complementary colors. I chose Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Handsome Hunter and Chocolate Chip as my colors. I also finally got a chance to ink up my new "Upsy Daisy" set. This set has been wildly popular for SU this year and it's very easy to see why! I stamped my "Fine Lace Background Stamp" on the Cameo Coral base. I wheeled my daisy wheel on both the Ruby Red piece as well as the bottom vanilla piece. I covered the image in Cameo Coral ink and then ran my brayer across the stamp and then rolled it across the paper. This created the reverse image. I stamped the image directly on the paper in Ruby Red ink on top of the Cameo Coral, thus creating the double look. I punched the corners using the ticket corner punch and added the ruby red eyelets.
I also worked on Beate's Weekend Sketch; but it's not quite finished, so I'll post that first thing Monday morning. Have a great weekend; and thanks for visiting with me!
