Kristina Werners Colour Inspiration Challenge #47

Hi All,

Phew! I'm so glad it's the weekend. I haven't done a CI Challenge from KWerner in a really long time. Well, when I popped over there to see what the latest combo was, I gasped! It was right up my alley, so I couldn't help but participate. Get this: it's Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, So Saffron, and Whisper White. I LOVE IT!

So, here is my take on it. I tried to go for simple.


I used plain white as the base. I tied the So Saffron ribbon around it (the one you receive from the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue), and I tied a small piece of Linen Thread around that, too.

For the top right square, I used my 1 3/8" square punch, and punched out a piece from the Delicate Dots DSP pack (also from Sale-A-Bration). I stamped a flower on it from the A Flower For All Seasons stamp set. I coloured it in with regular SU markers, and I stamped it again on a piece of scrap, so I could cut parts of it out and mount them on Dimensionals (just the pot and the flowers).
For the other 3 squares, I used my 1 1/4" square punch with Tangerine Tango Prints DSP, Hawaii Papaya DSP, and Bella Rose DSP to get the different patterns. I used my Scallop Square punch for the layers for those 3 squares.
The buttons are from the Buton Latte pack - they just so happen to be the EXACT colours in the Colour Challenge! I mounted them all with Mini Glue Dots, and Linen Thread is tied around the brown one.
I think that's about it - I hope the pictures are OK; it was a pretty nice day this morning.
Thanks for stopping by!
