This week Keesh had a Colour Challenge for the weekly Inkspirations challenge. You can join in and view the other entries here.
Here are the FABULOUS colours - I enjoyed mixing the Real Red in there instead of my usual Choc Chip:
Here's my creation:
When I saw these colours, I immediately thought of a sunset, but I didn't want to add any other colours to the mix. I decided to emboss the tree (from Forest Friends) onto glossy white cardstock, and brayer the So Saffron, Regal Rose and Real Red across the sky. I masked out the ground with some sticky notes, and sponged some Real Red to give the ground and trunk some definition. I added a layer of Real Red underneath, and added some of the new So Saffron grosgrain ribbon with some thinner Real Red grosgrain ribbon tied around it. I then adhered a So Saffron button from the Button Latte pack, with a thin strip of red cardstock threaded through it. The greeting (from Trendy Trees) was embossed in white onto Regal Rose cardstock and the edge punched with the Eyelet Border punch. The whole layer was then placed onto So Saffron DSP and the folded corner detail was completed with another button from the Latte pack, this time in Whisper White with Regal Rose cardstock 'thread'. I added the paper-pierced corner and adhered everything to the Regal Rose base.
I'm happy with how it turned out - my first attempt at brayering, and a larger card than I usually make - that's why it's called a challenge, I guess :)
Hope you like it,
