Kristina has been providing inspiration to many crafters by challenging us to use specific colour combinations, which has been great when you lose your crafting mojo, want to step outside your comfort zone or just a springboard to create a card, scrapbooking layout or an off-the-page project. Thanks Kristina for this weekly inspiration. If you want to check out the other contributions click here.
Kristina gave us the colours: White, Red, Yellow, Turquoise, and Brown to use and with the added instructions of: ALL five colours, no omitting any and no adding colours, either. She is going to be super strict on this one because there are prizes involved and this is what I created:
I hope my daughter likes the card and it was great to accomplish two tasks with one project - a challenge and a birthday card!
I stamped the background in Tempting Turquoise using the French Flair stamp (retired), then I created three flowers in Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip and Summer Sun with the 5-petal flower punch and added a small 5-petal flower in Whisper White using yellow rhinestone brads. I used my Scallop Edge punch to create a band in Ruby Red over which I adhered wide Chocolate Chip ribbon. The flowers were place over the birds on the background stamp and then I stamped 16 and Happy Birthday in Summer Sun.
