KW Color Inspiration #46

Check out Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration
#46
this week - gorgeous photo and color combination - Regal Rose, Riding Hood Red, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Basic Black.

Here's my card - I used a retired set called Love Matters. I received a swap card with this set from a friend in Denver and then I just had to get this set. I stamped the Friends sentiment in Basic Black ink onto the Bashful Blue strip. I added the Regal Rose color with my Watercolor Pencils and smoothed the color with a Blender Pen. Then I added a narrow mat of Basic Black to the top and a narrow mat of Scallop Edge Punched Basic Black to the bottom. I used my 3/16" Corner Rounder on the strip of Regal Rose and paper pierced it with my Mat Pack. I used the Mat Pack to poke the holes for the two Black Brads as well. The ribbon tab is a piece of the Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon from the 2008 Holiday Mini catalog. I used the Polka Dot background stamp with Pretty In Pink ink to stamp on the Pretty in Pink card front and layered it all onto a Regal Rose card base.

The inside of the card is a strip of Bashful Blue card stock with one of the heart stamps from Love Matters. The three Riding Hood Red flowers are from the Trio Flower Punch. I added the narrow strip of Basic Black to carry-over the design from the card front.
