5 Color Combos to Help You Create

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.

    I love the color combos. I tried to Pin them to a board, but could not figure out how that worked on your new site?
