KWerner Color Inspiration Challenge


This is my first attempt at kwerner's color inspiration challenge #8. The colors are Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie and Brilliant Blue. I found that my Bashful Blue was a lot darker than the example square from K's Blog. Still works though. Are we getting in the mood for Father's Day cards yet?
I used my SU Bronc Buster stamp set. Main image stamped in PP. I stamped the swirls in WW on the bg. I roughed up the edges of the main image and sponged on some Bashful Blue. I don't have any Brilliat Blue so I fudged with a piece of embossed tape for the sentiment. TIP: One of my favorite things to use on cards are finishing washers. Travis brought them home one day for some project and ended up not needing them...he turned to me and said, "I bet you could use these on YOUR stuff!" Sure enough, I have. They work perfectly with regular sized brads.
Have a super day!

This card rocks! Orange and blue is my favorite color combo of late so I think I'll have to go check out that challenge! Love the ribbon and the cool tip about the finishing washers. Thanks for the great idea!

Misty,
our heads must be in the same place because I saw your name on K Werner right when I was submitting my card. I love how different your card looks from mine. Same inspiration and our minds go different directions. Those finishing washers are cool!
