Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #14

Another Color Inspiration.....and it's different. I really like it.






I used some paper I bought to do a scrapbook layout of New Orleans, but it called my name to be used. One Heart One Mind is the paper company and the paper is called "fleur de lis". I also used a rub on by Kelly Panacci for the sentiment, and the striped ribbon is from Making Memories, it's what they call "textured tape". The instructions said that she added the River Rock and REal Red, but only if you needed to use the colors. I chose not to.





I watched Kristina's Make-A-Card Monday video and decided I'd try that too. My interpretation is a little different, but I really like the final presentation. I had never really done anything monochromatic. You can't really see it, but some of the stems are embossed. I've been playing with the idea of adding a little ink to higlight them, but I'm still a little wary of doing that.





I really like the way my cards came out...

I like how your card came out too. I am actually the monocromatic type of crafter and rarely use more than 3 colors on a card.
