Well, it’s a fun day in blog land.
That because I’m joining forces today with nine other crafters for the Color Inspiration for Card Makers Blog Hop. This is to the celebrate the new release of Paper Crafts magazine’s Color Inspiration for Card Makers special issue.
Just in case you haven’t heard about the issue, let me tell you a little bit about it. The issue is all about color and great color combos for card making. The issue hits the whole spectrum of color combos from neutrals and pretty pastels to bright & bold ones. You can find the issue in craft stores and on newstands all over. You can also find it in the Paper Crafts store by going here.
I think this issue has the potential to be a great resource for card makers. That’s because the color combos already decided for you. The issue is smack packed with color recipes of 3 to 4 colors to use. All you need to do it pick a combo and get to creating. And if you are anything like me, I spend a lot figuring out what colors I want to use when I start making stuff. It’s just nice to have that taken care of already.
Ok, so enough about the issue. Let me share with you my project for the hop.
With that, meet today’s card.
So we were asked to use the same color combo that Lea used on the card on the issue’s cover. I decided to channel my stamp loving side and use inks that matched with the combo. I bent the rules a bit (’cause would you guys wouldn’t know me any other way, right?) by using the white base.
To make the yellow butterfly pop a bit, I added a larger vellum butterfly below it.
The butterflies are from Papertrey Ink, while the sentiment is from Technique Tuesday. The blue pearls are from Queen & Co.
So that’s all I have to tell you about my card.
