Kristina Werner Colour Challenge #47

I thought I would give Kristina Werner's latest colour challenge a go.

These colours just cried out to me to give
the Stampin Up set All Aboriginal another go. I have used this
stamp before and find it very limiting, but I am quite pleased
how this one turned out. I used SU Whisper White for the card
itself and cut the corners with the corner rounder. I then
stamped the flower design from the SU Saleabration set Polka
Dot Punches in Choc Chip on Only Orange as my stock of the new
in colours is yet to arrive. I've gotta say when I saw this
set and this stamp specifically it made me think of using it
with the all aboriginal set. I know it's meant to be a flower
but it looks so much like a symbol that a lot of the
aboriginals put in their paintings, it also made me think
of their weaving they do with Pandanus leaves.
Here is one I have on the wall in my lounge that some of the local
Aboriginal women gave me. This is quite big, it is about a metre x
a metre.
So back to the card, I then used my sigmo white pen to highlight some
of the dots on each flower, I then used the corner rounder on this card
as well. I put some of the SU Choc Chip stitched ribbon down one side
and adhered the card to my base card.
Next I got the goanna stamp from the set and coloured it with my Choc
Chip, Only Orange and So Saffron markers and stamped it on So
Saffron card and backed it with Choc Chip and applied it on the orange
card. Last of all I stamped Thank You from the SU Spring Solitude set
in SU Craft white cut it out a little different and then put the stitching
around the edge with the sigmo pen.
Voila! I will be using this combo quite a bit from now on.

Thanks for the challenge Kristina.

Kristy, This is the nicest card I have seen done using this set. I too think you are very limited with the ways you can use it but I think you have done wonderfully well! The background is just perfect too!
