Hello Crafters! I’m super excited to be back on the blog after a mini break. Today we are talking a bit about color palettes.
Stephanie Low is one of my favorite artists and the Inked Messages line is amazing. I couldn’t wait to use it. Which is pretty obvious because I combined three stamp and die sets from the line to create today cards. They all just work so well together I couldn’t stop haha.
I knew I wanted a soft pattern in the background and the floral accented globe was perfect. It fit the theme and the stamp is gorgeous. I stamped it out using Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink and quickly realized that color wasn’t part of my go to color combinations. Instead of starting over to use a color palette I would be more comfortable with I decided to work outside of the box .
I went searching a few different options but ultimately Pinterest held the answer for me. I found that the tan color of the Antique Linen was often used in a more subdued color combination. Even though this isn’t my “go to” style it was awesome to try something different and I really love the card.
You can watch the card from start to finish in the video below
Watch video tutorial below or on Youtube to learn how to make this project:
I think my favorite part of the card is a toss up between the sentiment and the roses. There’s something about that mauvey rose color that just gets me.
I hope this inspires you guys to try a color palette you wouldn’t normally use. It’s fun to try new things and you can create something that’s still you but looks completely different. It’s such a great way to learn! Thanks for dropping in!
