Color Inspiration #44

I actually have two cards for Kristina Werner's color inspiration challenge this week because I loved the color combo!!! I did change it up to use Pretty in Pink instead of Pink Pirouette.

My first thought when I saw the colors was that I wanted to use a butterfly, so I reached for Flight of the Butterfly. I stamped the solid butterfly wings in Pretty in Pink on Whisper White, then the polka dot wings over it in Chocolate Chip. I stamped the sentiment in Close to Cocoa. I layered it on a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock. I then tied a piece of Chocolate Chip 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around it. Then I took a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock and punched it with the Scallop Edge punch and layered it behind the Pretty in Pink. I adhered this to a Close to Cocoa card.

My second card is Easter inspired. I stamped Sock Monkey on a piece of Whisper White with Jet Black StazOn. And then stamped the bunny ears from the accessories set over his head. I colored the ears and his mouth with Pretty in Pink and a blender pen. I then colored the monkey with Close to Cocoa and a blender pen and a Chocolate Chip marker. I then used my Signo White Gel pen to color his eye, because they tend to disappear under the Chocolate Chip marker. I then used my Basic Black Stampin' Write marker over the white of the eyes. I adhered a strip of Pretty in Pink along the bottom of a Close to Cocoa card and adhered my monkey bunny on top. I then stamped the sentiment from Loads of Love Accessories in Close to Cocoa. On a scrap of Whisper White I stamped the basket from Sock Monkey Accessories in Jet Black StazOn and again colored with Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa and a blender pen and a Chocolate Chip marker. I punched it out with the 1 1/4" Circle Punch and layered it on a piece of Chocolate Chip that was punched out with a 1 3/8" Circle Punch. I then adhered it to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I easily could've made 10 more cards using this color combination, but I refrained. I look forward to seeing what everyone else did for the challenge.
