Kristina Werner's Colour Inspiration #32


Woo Hoo, I've managed to get the colour inspiration done early. Thanks for the challenge Kristina. Red Riding Hood isn't in Australia so I tossed up between Rose Red and Real Red. Real Red won.
I embossed the flowers in white on Real Red cardstock first then popped them up on different levels of dimensionals. For the metallic I used Brushed Gold and to give the extra sparkle that is in the inspiration picture, I used the glue pen to go over the un embossed areas of the flowers then added Diamond Dust glitter. The greeting is a white rub on from the Hidden Garden range of rubons available in the New Summer Mini. The stamp set is Eastern Blooms, again from the Summer Mini. I've also used the Dashing DSP to bring in the Very Vanilla colour and Real Red grosgrain ribbon.
Edited to add - The Real Red base card has been stamped with the branch out of Eastern Blooms in Real Red. I felt it needed just a bit of pattern.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking.
