Color Inspiration #10

If you haven't discovered the awesomeness that is Kristina Werner, you are really missing out!! This fabulously talented phenom has more creativity in her little toe than I have in my entire body. She has a weekly color inspiration challenge, and I am finally taking the plunge and giving it a try. Here's the beautiful color palette for this week's challenge:


I'm not really feelin' the love on my creation, but here it is nonetheless... I started with some Bashful Blue for the cardbase. It looked awfully bright with the other colors, so I toned it down a bit using my color spritzer with Night of Navy and Old Olive markers. Next I stamped the tree image using Close to Cocoa, So Saffron and Old Olive markers, using the thumping technique. The sentiment is stamped with Not Quite Navy ink and the Whisper White cardstock was layered on some Le Jardin designer series paper and then onto Not Quite Navy cardstock. I attached some Old Olive poly-twill ribbon for another little splash of color. I attached everything with stampin' dimensionals and done! Hope you like it!! :)
