KWerner Color Inspiration 48

I've been a real slacker lately. My creative juices just stopped flowing. When I checked Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration, I loved the color combo so much, I just had to make a card. Here's what I came up with. It uses DSP and a Rubon from the Holiday Happenings bundle from the Fall-Winter 2008 Catalog, but I thought it was perfect for this card. This was my first time dying a flower from the Pretties Kit. I squeezed some Baja Breeze reinker in a paint tray and laid my flower down to absorb the ink. It was so dark and I really didn't like it, so I took it to the sink and ran it under some cold water. I rinsed off most of the color and then dried it with my heat tool. I put the rubon on some Chocolate Chip cardstock and punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch. I thought the center of the flower really needed something else besides just the punch, so I pulled out my clear buttons and decided to layer my punched circle on top. I really like how it turned out.

Stamps: None
Ink: Baja Breeze (to dye pretties flower)
Paper: Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, Holiday Happenings Level 3 Hostess (Retired)
Accessories: Chocolate Chip Ribbon, Pretties Flower, Clear Button, Rubon (Retired)
Punches: Scallop Edge, 3/4" Circle

I love how the flower turned out, it's got a slight variation of color -- just like nature! And I like how you added that little bit to the center -- really adds a lot.
