Kristina Werner CI #23

Kristina was sneaky and posted the Colour Inspiration challenge early this week! Luckily I get her blog on Google reader, but by the time I finished this last night it was too dark to take a picture....but here it is now, bright and early! This is the inspiration piece:
When I saw this for some reason it reminded me of when I was a little kid and we would pick bunches of random flowers for our mum and put them in a glass of water in the kitchen...so that was kind of the look I was going for here:
I used the hostess set, "Oh, So Lovely" and stamped the poppies and berries twice each onto Very Vanilla CS, using the trusty Stamp-a-ma-jig for placement, and using markers to colour directly onto the rubber...Olive for the stems and leaves, Saffron and Pumpkin for the poppies, and Burgundy for the berries. I coloured in the flowers, berries and leaves with the markers, and then stamped some of the small leaves from "Bodacious Bouquet" in Choc Chip, drawing in the stems with Olive marker. I mounted that onto a piece of Old Olive CS and tied it all up with some delicious Chocolate Satin Ribbon...just like we used to give our mum the flowers we picked tied up in ribbon....usually my hair ribbons...LOL!!! Finally I mounted it all onto a Saffron card base with dimensionals and stamped the 'Thank you' sentiment from "Short and Sweet" in Chocolate ink in between the ribbon ends.

Ok, keeping it short and sweet myself this morning. I should be back later on to show you some other stuff I've been doing...until then have a wonderful day,

Kristie
