Colour blocking

In search of inspiration recently I came upon a bright artistic card from Vicki and decided to try something similar myself.   I chose three colours and made sponged strips using post it note masks. I really like Vicki’s black line flowers and considered trying to draw my own but decided instead to use the In Full Bloom set. I then matted in black and used a coloured card base for a change.  By adding a few dots to the sentiment I made it look like it belonged in the flower set.

Thanks for the inspiration Vicki.


Stamps: In Full Bloom, Short & Sweet
Inks: Basic Black, Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue, Summer Sun
Cardstock: Whisper White, Certainly Celery

    This is beautiful! What a great idea echoing the dots of the flower image in the sentiment to make them coordinate more closely. I like the coloured card base, too! 🙂

  4. So fresh and clean. The floral images from In Full Bloom work perfectly for a sketchy look here. Beautiful card.

    This is a great idea and your take on it is beautiful. One of the things I love about your cards is your attention to detail and tying the sentiment into the stamp set with the dots is typical of that.

    Hope your clever musicians are having a good trip and I bet you miss their teasing! Vx
