color inspiration 25


This week's color inspiration over at KWernerDesign is once again, great! Ballet Blue, Certainly Celery, So Saffron, and Ruby Red - aren't these colors so much fun for kids' quilts? Might have to rethink the colors in Andrew's room...
For the clouds in the sky I used my scallop punch and then sponged around the edges on whisper white cardstock to create the layered look. The waves were made with the inverse cut from my rectangle scallop Nestibilities die. The background is the Nursery Letters jumbo wheel.

Thanks so much for swinging by - see you back soon!
Karen

recipe -
stamps: nursery necessities, nursery letters jumbo wheel
ink: so saffron, certainly celery, ballet blue, ruby red
paper: so saffron, ruby red, ballet blue, whisper white cardstock
accessories: scallop punch, rectangle scallop nestibilities die, celery grosgrain ribbon, sponge daubers, stampin' dimensionals
