Color Inspiration Challenge 11

It's time again for the kwernerdesign blog Color Inspiration Challenge. The palette and inspiration shown above is brought to us by Ikea. Read on to see my entry and to read a little bit behind the design.

I really liked the palette for this week's challenge. It was much easier for me than the previous challenge. As Kristina pointed out when she posted the challenge, the inspiration uses a great deal of white. I love working with white as much as I like working with color. In terms of impactful design, white, when used with limited amounts of bold color can really provide an incredible result.

This card is very simple, but I think that's what is most striking about it. I love the layers of petals, the dimension of the flower, the texture of the piercings really pop. This challenge was great fun. Hope you enjoy!!
