Okay, this is the first time I tried two cards for Kristina’s Colour Inspiration. These bright colours were way out of my comfort zone. Honestly, it was just too hard for me, not sure why, each colour was so bold & I couldn’t make it come together. Maybe if I had only used minimal amounts, of each bold colour. I can’t wait to see how everyone else pulled it off. I’ve never missed one of Kristina’s Colour Inspirations, so I wanted to give it a go & see what I could come up with. They are too much fun to pass, as hundreds of other know.
I thought it might be fun to knit a little blanket, to mirror the afgan in the Photo, but if you could see me, you would have laughed. The only “wool” I could find (in my arsenal in the craft room) in Pumpkin Pie was Cross Stitch Thread, so I used that, but it was taking so long, & I felt like a GIANT with wee thread & the smallest knitting needles I owned:
Anyways, here’s the result from that silly endeavor. For anyone who ever wanted to know, you can’t easily cable with Cross Stitch Thread, so I just did regular k/p:
And after looking at it, it was just too much Green Galore for my liking so I took it down a bit & came up with this, my second attempt at these colours:

I did the best I could, but it just wasn’t coming together for me.
I used Green Galore CS, Pumpkin Pie CS, Rose Red Textured CS, Rose Red PP, Petite Scallop Circles Nestabilites, Black Embossing Powder, Versamark, dimensionals, Stamps: Seeing Spots, Toile Blossoms, Favourite Greetings & some ribbon.
