Hey guys, It's Kara. I'm back with another PURE COLOR Combination. Summer is almost here and it's making me so happy! Today's card has a very summery color palette, bright sun and deep green grass.
I started by stamping my design using Watercolored Anemones in Fairy Dust ink. This pale grey serves as a guide for stamping the flowers and leaves in my color palette. It is soft enough to fade into the background while also providing a slight shadow for my images. I stamped the flowers in Falling Star, Wild Mango, and Flamingo ink. The leaves and stems are stamped in Mojito and Appletini ink. I used the new Black ink to stamp my sentiment from Doodle Buds.
I die cut the butterfly from white cardstock. Using sponge daubers, I added color starting on one side with a little Appletini ink. As I moved across the butterfly to the left wing, I switched to Mojito ink and then let it fade to almost white. I mounted the stamped panel on a piece of Coal Mine cardstock to add some contrast and pick up the color from the sentiment. Coal Mine is perfect for this card because it is not as stark a contrast as black.
What do you think, want to give it a go? We'd love to see your take on this color combination! If you'd like to play along link up your collections below to keep the inspiration going.
