Inkspirations Colour Challenge #50 – Ripped and Torn


This week on the Inkspirations Challenge Blog, Keesh has challenged us to use a great colour combination:

With my mind so much on the holidays, I had a hard time with this but decided to go relatively simple with my design as these colours totally pack a punch!

I used Pear Pizzaz for my base and then layered with Rich Razzleberry and some Tempting Turquoise which I textured with the Perfect Polka Dots folder.

Down the centre, I added some Rich Razzleberry Taffeta ribbon with a very thin strip of Pear Pizzaz cardstock.

For the central panel, I took some Rich Razzleberry cardstock and edged with the Scallop Trim Corner punch and border punch. I decided I’d leave to the top straight and added a half circle and a bow of Rich Razzleberry Taffeta ribbon.

I took a piece of Pear Pizzaz cardstock and layered it with a piece of Whisper White on which I’d stamped the dragonfly from Nature’s Nest in Rich Razzleberry. I stamped this image again in Tempting Turquoise and Pear Pizzaz and tore them, laid them over the original and adhered. A strip of vellum cardstock stamped with a sentiment from Fundamental Phrases completes this card.

I encourage you to check out what the rest of the Design Team came up with and please make your way over to the Inkspirations Challenge Blog and have fun with this challenge!
