Colour Inspiration #17

Here is Kristina's colour inspiration for this week:

The colours are Regal Rose, Rose Red, Sage Shadow and Whisper White

When I saw this Inspiration picture I thought of the Wild Rose stamp set so that's what I used. Here is my card for the week:

I thought I would use Whisper White for the base of the card as it's nice and fresh. I stamp some leaves on a piece of Sage Shadow cardstock. I stamped onto scrap paper first before stamping on the cardstock to give a more subtle finish. I then tore the paper to get a rough edge.

I stamp the flower in Regal Rose then the outline in Rose Red onto Whisper White cardstock. I mounted that onto Sage Shadow and textured Regal Rose cardstock. The Sage layer is mounted using Dimensionals.

The greeting is from the True Friend stamp set from the spring mini catalogue. I stamped this in Rose Red ink and used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get the greeting where I wanted it. I then used Whisper White grosgrain ribbon down the side of the card.

This is so pretty Kellie. You know the rose isn't my fave set, but you always make it look fab! It suits the colours perfectly too. Great job! Hope you've had a great weekend.
