Color combinations seem to be what I always start with when I create.
A good color combination can set into motion a GREAT crafting experience.
A bad color combination can pretty much make your crafting experience suck.
Here are 5 full proof color combos that will make your heart pitter patter and get your creative juices pumping.
1} Marina Mist, Wisteria Wonder and Blushing Bride. Soft, springy, baby, wedding. This combo can fit so many different themes.
Technique: On this card I used a blender pen dipped into ink pads. Super simple technique and really fun to do. Great alternative for coloring and having a watercolor finish. I stamped the outline in the color that I blended with. This softens the outline of the flower.
2} Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay and Daffodil Delight. Bright, springy, summer, happy.
Technique: I stamped the outline image in memento tuxedo black ink. I colored the flowers using Blendabilities. They give beautiful shading and you can add where you want areas darkened. Super simple and fun.
3} Crushed Curry, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie. Bold, Regal, Summer, Fall. Great colors that make a statement.
Technique: Again I used blendabilities for this card. However instead of stamping in Memento Tuxedo Black for the outline, I stamped with each of the stamp colors listed above.
4} Coastal Cabana, Pistachio Pudding and Strawberry Slush. Bright, fun, spring, easter.
Technique: There is no coloring on this card. I just simply stamped the beautiful colors and that was it.
5} Memento Tuxedo Black, Rose Red and Crushed Curry. Elegant, fun, youthful, trendy.
Technique: On this card I used the blender pen again. However I used the technique very light. I didn’t want the shading very dark at all. I really love how this one turned out.
Here I have a little tutorial for you on how to cut and mask images. Super fun technique. Easy and all you need is extra paper. Love doing this.
Just in case I made the tutorial above confusing, I went ahead and did a video for you.
