Colour Inspiration #14

Here is Kristina's challenge for the week:

This was a hard challenge for me but good. I hope you like what I've done with the colours, not sure if I'm happy with what I've done yet but here it is anyway:The colours are ruby red, river rock, basic black, going grey and basic grey.

The base of the card is going grey. I've stamped the flower image from the level 3 hostess set Time Well Spent on going grey in basic black. I've coloured parts of the flower using a blender pen and ruby red ink (I don't have ruby red marker) and put a brad in the centre. I've stamped the greeting from Occasional Greetings in ruby red on river rock. I put a little crystal effects on the dots on the flower. I cut 3 squares, 2 in basic grey and 1 in river rock and mounted them onto black cardstock. I've used the river rock double stitched ribbon and mounted the flower onto the card using dimensionals. I used the 1 3/8" square punch with river rock for the bottom left corner and made photo corners using the large tag punch for the bottom right corner. I added 3 more brads to the top left corner for interest. I tried not to use too much colour as I wanted to try and stick to the greys and black; as I said before I found these colours very hard.
