Kristina's Colour Inspiration #19

Even though poor Kristina has a very sore back (a problem I can definitely relate to!) she has put up another colour inspiration challenge today. As soon as I saw it there, I went and whipped out a very quick card. I might find time to play with this again later, but for now here's the inspiration: #19 swatch

 

 

 

 

And here's my first attempt:

S6300811

For my touch of colour I went with Pink Passion, which I think looks awesome with the black, gray and white.

I've used the 'Office Accoutrements' stamps, some little black buttons threaded with little slivers of pink CS, Pink ink (of course), a bit of scalloping with the slit punch and some piercing around the Gray panel.

The only thing that was unusual about this card was that when I cut the black base to A5 I didn't just fold it in half, but scored it at 9.5cm and added the scalloped piece to the short side. Oh, I guess the other unusual thing is that I didn't use any ribbon...LOL!!

I might have to send this one to Mad, she's definitely an original...and it's all because of her that I got this stamp set in the first place!!

OK, this is the third post for the day, so you're probably all sick to death of me by now! I'm going to go lie down and watch some Olympic action...it doesn't matter what, my brain needs a rest as well as my back.

See ya,

Kristie
