Hello friends!! Wednesday is here, again, and that means time for a brand new color combo over at Colour Me!! This week you have two color plus neutrals to play with and those two colors are: Rich Razzleberry (a rich purple) and Pool Party (a pale aqua blue). All the details regarding the challenge can be found here.
I will be honest and tell you that I initially had a bit of trouble coming up with an idea for this color combo. I had one idea that I did actually like, but then I came up with the second idea and liked it even better. Color combos that contain a soft color and a bold color can be tricky, but I have found that when you use the softer color as an overall background color and the bold one in small amounts you can strike the right balance. For my card I used the Hero Arts Radient Banner background stamp and a sentiment/image from the My Favorite Things Lovey Dovey Sentiments set. I inked up the background image with Pool Party and then carefully laid my cardstock on top. I lightly rubbed around the edges and more firmly in the center so that there would be less ink around the edges and more in the center. The sentiment was stamped, trimmed out and adhered as shown. I added a few clear sequins because... well... sequins make anything better, right??? ETA: I realized that this would work for the current CASology challenge "bold" ... so I will be adding my card to the gallery there.
