Colour Inspiration #22 (#5 if you're me:)





...say it's only some paper flowers...sailing over a cardstock screen...but it wouldn't be make believe if you believed in me...

I've got the tune to Paper Moon in my head today, can you tell?!

So Kristina's colour inspiration this week was a bit of a challenge for me. I wasn't sure at all about putting the burgundy together with the rose red & regal rose. The bravo burgundy is a browny-red toned burgundy and the rose red and regal rose are very pink-y to me. So I stared at my paper for a while before I actually started creating.

Recipe:
- cardstock - bravo burgundy, whisper white, rose red, regal rose, soft sky
- stamps - SU short & sweet and SU one of a kind
- ink - versamark & bravo burgundy
- boho blossom punch

I also made this little gift bag/box with some K&Co paper that matched the inspiration colours well.
