Our theme for this highlight is get well soon, and these colors certainly make me feel better 🙂
The paper I used to make this project is Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper. The sentiment has a beautiful script that I used from Thoughts & Prayers stamp set. I am using markers for this project because I want the paper to really hold on to the ink and stay happy and bright. This Designer paper is available FREE with a $50 product purchase now. There are lots of other free Sale-A-Bration items to choose from as well.
I am using contrasting colors of pink and gray that also compliment one another. Two shades of gray (Smoky Slate & Basic Gray) with two shades of pink )Melon Mambo & Pink Pirouette. By using different shade of the same basic colors, I am helping to give the illusion of depth and carry the focus around the card. If you would like to get a slightly darker or more saturated look to a color, try adding a few more layers of color from the marker to your image. This will completely saturate the paper and give you the deepest color.
Measurements for this project are:
Inside the Lines dsp: 4 1/4″ x 3 3/8″
Basic Black paper: 4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″
Vellum paper: 4 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
Basic Gray card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
sentiment: Melon Mambo 1/2″ x 3″ Black 5/8″ x 3 1/4″
The sentiment has been heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss powder and VersaMark ink pad. This give a nice bit of texture to the card when it is held in your hand. Try using this paper with a different color scheme and see the difference in the result. What can you think of to use this paper?
