Color Inspiration #57

When I lined up the ink colors of Kristina Werner's color challenge on my worktable, I immediately thought of a sunrise/sunset. The colors are a dark red (Ruby Red), Cameo Coral, More Mustard, So Saffron, Baja Breeze and Whisper White - or equivalent colors in non-Stampin' Up! products. Surprisingly the red didn't show up that much in the finished product althought it really is there and the effect was a very soft sunrise.  So I paired the image with Cameo Coral cardstock, So Saffron ribbon, and a Baja button.

Typically I do this technique of embossing an image and then sponging on colors on plain white cardstock.  For this one, I tried water color paper in the card at top. The results were very similiar.  You get a little more texture showing through on the watercolor paper.

The bottom of the card is vellum stamped using Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Whisper White.
