Meeting My First Challenge!


From Adriel:

I have wanted to do this for a long time and I finally did it today! I took on color inspiration/challenge #14 on K. Werner's blog for these 5 colors.



Basic Black, Basic Gray, Ruby Red, River Rock, and Whisper White

I would never have chosen these colors to go together, but I love them! I used a set (Seriously Sassy) that we originally got to use with teens, but it seemed to go with the whole inspiration well. Hope you like it! Let me know what you think!



Recipe:

Card measures 6-5/8"x3-1/4"


Inspiration colors (listed and shown above)

Seriously Sassy stampset
Little Pieces stampset (soon to be retired! sniff, sniff)
Tagger's Dozen (also retiring)

1-1/2" circle punch
1-1/4" circle punch
1-3/8" square punch
1-3/4" square punch

Basic Black craft ink pad
Classic Basic Black ink pad
Clear embossing powder
Ruby Red Stampin' Write marker

Basic Gray taffeta ribbon
Basic Black brads
Dimensionals (of course!)

BTW, I know this is my second post today, but I couldn't wait until tomorrow!

This is fabulous balance of shape and color, it almost appears to have a "beat." ~ Happy 4th!
