KWD Colour Inspiration

I wasn't really planning on posting twice today, but I spotted Kristina's colour inspiration and knew I needed to make a card. Sometimes you see a group of colours and, sorry to sound cheesy, it kind of speaks to you. This one definitely said AUTUMN loud and clear. I thought about going with leaves, but I've been using my Garden of Life set so much today that I thought I would make a card focusing on a fall flower-chrysanthemums. We have pink ones in the backyard that are almost ready to open.

One thing I noticed with this colour combination is how ideally it works for 2-step stamping. I decided to make 2 types of 'mums. Burgundy base with a chocolate outline and saffron base with a pumpkin outline. I added in bits of olive leaves for the 5th colour, doing all my image stamping on Vanilla paper.

Supplies: Stamps: Garden of Life, Birthday Basics Ink: Bravo Burgundy, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive Paper: Saffron, Olive, Vanilla, Chocolate Accessories, etc.: Tag and Label Nestabilities, orange brad, pop dots

Thanks for stopping by!
