Another fabulous color inspiration challenge has been posted at Kristina Werner's Design Blog. The colors are Riding Hood Red, Very Vanilla, Whisper White and Sahara Sand or a metallic color. Since I don't have any Sahara Sand, and I really liked the idea of the metallic colors, I went that way.
I used the "faux metal" technique that was highlighted a few weeks ago at Splitcoast Stampers, and used some of my snowflake stamps to create the "metal" ornaments. The silver embossing powder was the perfect choice!
I'm not going to repeat any of the bad things I said while trying to get the layout just right, but I will say that I really, really love the final look!
I used several different stamp sets, all different companies. So I really mixed it up! The Riding Hood Red shows up brighter than it really is, and the contrast between the Very Vanilla and Whisper White wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
