Kristina Werner's Color Combo


Can I just say "WOW"? This was such a tough challenge. Little Webster dude sitting on my shoulder saying " Uh...YAH! That's what a CHALLENGE is..DUH!" But man did I have to work to get something with these colors. They are so out of my range. I would NEVER put these together. And I have to say even now...I would NOT put these colors together. Taken with Teal and Pacific Point are 2 of my least favorite colors. A little goes a long way, ya know?! So here is my creation. (Third try BTW) And I know I said I would post it tomorrow but I couldn't wait to check what others have done. And I never look at the other creations til mine has posted. So...2 posts in one day.

So here is the recipe:
Stamps: Best Yet (hostess set)
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Pacific Point
Paper: Pumpkin Textured, White, Taken w/Teal, Eggplant, Pacific Point
Other: Self dyed ribbon (pacific point reinker and white grosgrain ribbon) Hodgepodge kit, Pick a Petal Classy Brass template ( pg 191 of catalog) Stylus, paper piercer, various circle punches (all SU), Corner rounder for the scalloped edge.
The technique used is called dry embossing. You can see that several of the circles have been dry embossed and paper pierced. I also pierced the white card using the classy brass template. It has several guides for this. I hope you enjoy!
