Kristina Werner Colour Challenge # 41

Hi there,

well it has been a few busy days and a very busy morning (first the food shopping then putting the baby to bed for his nap and once he was a sleep taking Miss 4 out to the playground to meet up with our playgroup). Finally I'm home, everyone's had lunch and I can try and get this posted before Kristina's Mr Linky closes. Here is her inspiration picture.

Anyway when I saw Kristina inspiration photo I decided to do something that would reflect the dresses and that evolved into a dress. It came together pretty much as I had imagined in my head and I'm reasonably happy with it - it could be tweaked to be better but I'm not quite sure how. If anyone has any suggestions let me know - please :)

Here is a close up of the top cuttlebug panel that I outlined with white gel pen - I was very happy with how this bit turned out.

Lastly a pic of the inside
A card little girls might like - certainly my four year old did.

Looks like Spring
Card stock: Ruby Red, Basic Black, Whisper White and Basic Gray
Ink: Basic Black, Ruby Red
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Floral screen folder, Silver hodgepodge, white gel pen, Dimensionals (to lift up the ends of the white pleats in the skirt), Snail adhesive, White, narrow grosgrain ribbon, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop circle punch, Scallop edge punch, Black sakura glaze (aqualip) pen


  1. What a clever card - I love it. I especially like the effect of the white outline on the cuttlebug panel - it is really effective.
    Glad you got time to publish your post after the busy morning... Talk to you Monday
    Cathy :)

  2. What a fab idea - so creative, TFS!!! Kate xxx
