Colour Inspiration # 8


This is Kristina Werners Colour Inspiration # 8. Kristina puts up a colour inspiration challenge each week on her blog for anyone to participate. If you haven't checked out her blog you need to. Here is my attempt at the colour inspiration:





















Sorry the pictures aren't clearer. I made this tri-fold card using brilliant blue for the base. I made the stripes on the front and middle section using various widths of pumpkin pie, brilliant blue and bashful blue and used my new striped grosgrain ribbon in bashful blue; I only received it yesterday so as my husband would say 'that's a sign'!!! I've used the scallop punch, 1 1/4" circle punch and the 1 3/8" circle punch. The stamp said that was used was Boho Backgrounds and everything was stuck down using double sided tape or dimensionals.

It was fun making this card using colours that I wouldn't normally use, it's good to try new colour schemes so why not have a try using colours you wouldn't normally reach for next time you need to make a card.
