Color Inspiration #32
It's time for another Color Inspiration from Kristina Werner. When I first saw the colors for this week, I almost opted out of doing it this week mainly because I knew that the best thing to do would be a holiday card of some kind. However, I'm on a complete Christmas card overload since I'm trying to get my own finished to mail out. But what can I say? If stamping is an addiction, then Kristina's Color Inspiration must surely be an enabler!! So, this is what I came up with.
I started with a Riding Hood Red base and then added a neutral piece which I stamped with "Fine Lace" background stamp in Creamy Caramel. The original color palette calls for Sahara Sand; but I didn't have any of that. Come to think of it, I don't think I've ever had any of it! I embossed the angel image with gold embossing powder and then watercolored with Ruby Red and Caramel inks. I wheeled the "Soft Holly" image across a piece of Very Vanilla Card stock and then used poppin' pastels technique to color the entire piece in Old Olive chalk. I went over the image with Old Olive marker to add some definition and used my Ruby Red marker for the holly berries.
Ok, so that's all for this post. I posted my piece for Beate's Inspiration Challenge also today, so be sure to scroll down and take a look!
