The challenge this week at Less is More is to create a card using opposing colors on the color wheel.
I seem to always have trouble with a color challenge...don't have any idea why..but it really is the most difficult for me, I think. Anyway...here's what I finally came up with.....
I also used some of the techniques we learned this week in the His & Hers online card class. For this first card, I masked off the top portion of the car and stamped the image in white on Kraft card stock. I then masked off a small line at the top of the stamped image and inked it up with some white. After the ink was completely dry, I colored the image with Prisma color pencils and used the opposing colors violet and yellow. I mounted the kraft panel to a violet card base.
For this second card I used the colors yellow-green and violet-red. It looks kind of pink on here, but this card front was made with watercolor paper. I stamped the flowers in a light ink, then added the water colors. After the panel dried, I outlined the stamped image with a black pen to give it a little pop. The sentiment was stamped on vellum and embossed in white. In order to really capture the colors for the challenge, I added strips of color around the panel in yellow-green and violet-red. I also used my paint brush to splatter drops of the two colors over the stamped image.
This is another card I made using techniques from the His and Hers class. I colored strips of vellum with Copic markers, cut them in varying lengths and adhered them to a white card panel. I stamped "birthday" on a strip of vellum and adhered it around the card panel. The word "happy" was cut with alpha dies from Simon Says Stamps and are adhered over the vellum strips. I used the opposing colors blue and orange for this card.
I think this last card is starting to grow on me now. I wasn't too sure I liked it at first, but it's getting better! LOL! I used opposing colors blue-violet and yellow-orange for this card. I use my large Memory Box (Chloe) butterfly die to embossed a white panel (4 x 5.25 inches). I colored the butterfly with Copics, then added a little sparkle in the "grooves" with a clear star pen (Sakura). I wanted to add just a little more zip...so I painted over the coloring with some twinkling H20 paints. Since I wasn't using water color paper I was afraid it would not work...but laying the Copic ink down first seemed to help. I added a light yellow-orange shadow around the butterfly. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamps. I layered the panel on a piece of yellow-orange paper and adhered it to a white card base. Is it CAS enough??
