KWerner's Color Inspiration # 56



This was kind of an eerie challenge. I swear, the day before the challenge came out, I made a card with almost the same exact colors. Unfortunately before I thought about taking a picture of it, I mailed it off. I thought about recreating it but when I was sketching for this challenge I came up with something entirely different. I was thinking about how my designs seem to have stitching in almost all of them and how I could incorporate that into this card.

So.. here's how it turned out.



Lots and lots of stitching. I had almost all the colors in my embroidery stash except for the celery & ballet blue. Not a big deal though.. embroidery floss is like $0.59 each? I am guilty of wasting 2 sheets of white cardstock on this challenge though. When I did my sketches for the first two attempts, they didn't turn out quite as well when I tried it out with the actual materials.



Anyway, I've babbled on enough hope you guys like it :)
