Unusual Color Combo

Unusual Color Combo

Kristina Werner picked this unusual color combo for her latest Color Inspiration Challenge (#29), and I gave it my best shot. If you are looking for the Taken with Teal on my card, I stamped the solid flowers on scrap paper before I hit the Whisper White card stock. The outline image was stamped with Elegant Eggplant ink. The card base is Pacific Point textured card stock, and I used a Pumpkin Pie sheet of Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper.

I really like using the rub-ons on textured card stock, and I am very happy with my double scalloped border. I can’t wait to see what everybody else did with these colors!

Thanks for stopping by!
