I find Kristina Werner to be quite an inspiration. I accepted her invitation to complete a color challenge and here is my attempt. Her image reminded me of some of the tropical trips I have been on!
For this card, I used a base cardstock of Close to Cocoa. On top of that I layered Taken with Teal, Chocolate Chip and finally a watercolor paper. I stamped the palm tree image from Balmy Breezes (Retired) in Staz On black. Then I used my Aquapainter to watercolor the palm tree image in Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Tempting Turquoise and Taken with Teal. I finished the palm tree image with a sentiment from the Sale-A-Bration rub ons in Old Olive.
It is hard to see in this photo, but I lifted the Chocolate Chip matted piece off the base card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, I finished the piece by tying a piece of sheer Ivory ribbon around the front flap of the card. I secured the knot with a mini glue dot.
Here are the colors and the inspiration photo from Kristina's website. You can see her website at http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog/index.html.
