So Very Saffron

Hi there,

well this is not the vintage-ish card I mentioned last post although it has a similar feeling. Hopefully I will be able to write that post soon. This card is in response to two challenges - fortuitously a sketch challenge from Mojo Monday and the latest colour challenge from Kristina Werner. Here's the sketch and the colour selections.

I had been thinking about the Mojo sketch all week and had already decided I wanted to use the flower from Touch of Nature, and when I saw Kristina's colours it was a perfect match. The card is basically So Saffron and Chocolate Chip, which turns out to be a lovely combo. I don't have Tangerine Tango so I used Pumpkin Pie instead and I have to admit, only a little to accent the centre of the flower. The flower I coloured using an aquapainter and my ink pads. Other points to note are the cuttlebug background (Floral Screen), ribbon, my new punch, Fyskar's (Cristina Re) Florentine and some DSP courtesy of Jayne Mercer (thanks).

I finished the inside off simply by punching down one side and then layering over some ribbon.

Touch of Nature, Warmest Regards
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, watercolour paper
Ink: Timber Brown Stazon, Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Going Gray
Accessories: Fyskar's (Cristina Re) Florentine border punch, aquapainter, wide double stitched Chocolate Chip ribbon, narrow Apricot Appeal grosgrain ribbon (but honestly its perfect match to So Saffron), Le Jardin DSP, Dimensionals, SNAIL adhesive, cuttlebug Floral Screen, So Saffron brads, 1/8" circle punch, Oval nestabilites and no embossing for a change.
