Dressing up is a bore

Today’s card features Katherine a gorgeous stamp from Kraftin’ Kimmie.

I’ve used the colour inspiration from Color Throwdown to do up my card.  I’ve used two of the colours on the image for her dress and picked up the third colour on the card itself in the border and on the rectangle elements.  I’ve made these using alcohol ink although I didn’t have the right colour in my alcoholic inks so I just used Various Ink for it.  The yellow colour is a bit gold toned so I used some Gold Mixative for added interest on the rectangles.

The layout of my card follows the current sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches, I just added in my image over the top of the background elements.  The fab quote stamp comes with Katherine and perfectly suits the friend this card is going out to.

Over at 4 Crafty Chicks they’re looking for CAS projects so I am entering my card in their challenge.  I am loving the colour combo on her dress and the CAS design that allows Katherine to take centre stage.
