Kristina's CI #42

Hi All! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend! We are enjoying Mardi Gras here in Southeast Texas!

Just a quick post to make the deadline for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #42. Colors to use were Really Rust, More Mustard, Kiwi Kiss and Whisper White. I CASEd myself ;) from an earlier post to make it easy to put together.
I like to emboss images before coloring or watercoloring so here I have used Always Artichoke Craft Ink with Clear Embossing Powder for the main image. The border image is stamped in VersaMark then clear embossed for the tone on tone look.
I sponged the More Mustard Sweetest Stem Embosslit to tie in both colors to that element. I used a very thin strip of More Mustard CS for the faux thread through the button.
Thanks for visiting!
