A KWerner Color Challenge...

When I saw the latest Color Inspiration Challenge on Kristina Werner's blog this week, I couldn't help but play along! The colors were so rich and gorgeous! Here is what she challenged us with:



And here is what I made:



Goodies:
All products by Stampin' Up!

Stamps: Always set
Ink: More Mustard, Really Rust, Going Gray, Basic Gray Classic inks; Versamark
Paper: Basic Gray, Very Vanilla, Really Rust cardstock; Autumn Vine DSP
Accessories: Clear embossing powder, Very Vanilla wide grosgrain ribbon, Stamping Sponges, paper piercer, White Signo Gel pen, Scallop Edge punch, Dimensionals

I decided to go with an old, favorite stamp set, Always... I haven't used it in so long! It was one of my very first Stampin' Up! purchases and definitely worth every penny! Don't you love sets like that!

I also used my favorite technique, emboss resist with the heart... I layered it to incorporate more colors to the design and added a Very Vanilla mat to really make it pop off the background. I wanted to keep it simple so I tried not to go overboard on all the little things... sometimes I have a habit of that! Hee!

Thanks for taking a peek today! I am thinking of taking my girls to explore a new park... it is too perfect outside to stay inside!
