KW's Colour Challenge 17 - Kind of Boho

Wow, where did the last week go? It’s Kristina’s colour challenge 17 already, so here we go again! This week’s colours are rose red, regal rose, sage shadow & whisper white & here’s the pic.And here’s my card.I didn’t have a full picture of what I wanted the card to look like initially, so I just played with a few ideas & hoped it would come together. The belt & buckle made me think of the new Styled Silver Hodgepodge ribbon slide, so I used it with 2 stylised flowers (from ‘One of a Kind’ – another new Spring Mini set, & ‘Boho Backgrounds. I used a sueding technique (that I saw Shelli Gardner demo on a scrapbooking tv show ages ago) to soften the look of the sage & rose cards & used textured white cardstock to give...well more texture! For the greeting, I used some flower & greeting rub-ons to finish it off. I soooo love that SU has rub ons, as they’re one of my scrapping essentials.
The detail is a bit hard to see, as things usually are around midnight, but hopefully they’re a bit clearer here. I'll try for a better pic in the daylight! Edited: what a difference the light of day makes. I've added some better pics (I think anyway!)Anyway, hope you like it. Have a great Friday....& weekend too!

Stamps: One of a Kind, Boho Backgrounds
