Last week I shared a couple of the places from which I get my inspiration, and I want to continue with that theme for this week as well. As stampers, we love color, and some colors we tend to use and gravitate to all the time. They are comfortable for us. Sometimes, I choose a color that is uncomfortable as a starting point, and then work my card from there.
The main color in this card is an bright orchid color - not one I choose often! I started with the cardstock base first, and then used a similar color to watercolor my violets. I think the contrasting greens add a nice pop of life to these beautiful spring flowers!
Thank you for stopping by today! Next week I will be using two sets to show you a fun tutorial on my favorite technique. Don't miss it!
p.s. If you have a tough time with color, there is actually a great resource online called Color Blender. You can find it HERE. At the bottom of the site, there is a link that says "load a random blend," click on it for a color coordinated mix. Or, move the R,G,and B sliders yourself to "audition" colors together. Once you find color combos you can't live without, you can print and save for ideas in your card making down the road!
