Color Inspiration 17

Well, I had to laugh when I saw Kristina's Color Inspiration 17 because it was almost exactly the same combo I had for my first Color Throwdown Challenge.  She added Rose Red to hers to match the beautiful vintage dress she found.  Check it out:

072208-colors

07-24-08 KWerner Challenge 7

I had a couple different ideas for this, but ran out of time, so went with my first sample using the hydrangea and sentiment from Inque Boutique's Fluttering By, Butterfly.  (Plus I have NO rose stamps!!)  I used Craft Rose Red and Craft Sage Shadow to stamp the main image, then filled in with Classic Regal Rose & Sage Shadow inks with an aquapainter.  I used the Craft ink because, once dry, it won't bleed.  The sage panel is stamped in Soft Sage with the Linen background stamp, and the white card base is stamped off with the flourish from Baroque Motifs, also in Sage Shadow.  I added an old piece of lace and pearl button from my stash for the "vintage" look of the dress.  How coincidental that my dresser scarf mimics the flourishes!!!  This looks rather vanilla in the photo, but it really is white!  Thanks for visiting!!
