Color Inspiration #34

Another Fabulous Color Combination by Kristina Werner. Again stepping outside my comfortable colors or working on yet another Christmas card, working with these colors was a Breath of fresh air!

I chose to stamp my tree in bordering blue, although I tried grey too, it was outside the color challenge so I changed it back. I added leaves to the tree in all the other colors and this one went together pretty quickly. I was surprised to see how close bordering blue was to the in color inspired button. When I was all done, I painted the leaves with crystal effects to make them shiny. Ohh.. it's shiny!!! What a fabulous color combo! Thanks for another awesome challenge Kristina! I had fun!

Finally, here'a a close up of the leaves in case the first photo didn't shine enough. I turned off the flash to get this one! :) ~ Selene
