A Study in Red

Authentique Paper and Core'dinations are teaming up this week to bring you tons of inspiration using Authentique Paper and Core'dinations products!


After you check out the projects here on the Authentique Paper blog, be sure to head on over to the Core'dinations blog to find out what the talented members of the Core'dinations Design Team have in store for you today!

**********

 I love the color red. Now some people see red as a powerful, active or angry color. But I see red as warmth, love, and earth. When I received the stash of paper from Core'dinations and saw the rich and varied reds, I knew it was time to create something special with my favorite color.


My study in red is built with roses created with Kraft-Core and ColorCore cardstocks, as well as Carefree and Glory from Authentique. Each rose is torn from squares of paper, twirled, then inked or Stickled. Look closely and you'll see some of the roses have embossed petals. The Core'dinations paper holds up to embossing and sanding, so I got some nice color variations.


I loved how the deep red in Glory and the orange-red in Carefree work so well together, and along with the cardstock offer a beautiful variety.
