To choose my color palette, I begin with the darkest, most dominate color and set it aside for my sentiment. I will then choose two or three more dominate colors to play with.
I used the Flirty Flamingo for my branches with flowers.
I then stamped and punched out two butterflies: one in Real Red and the other in Crushed Curry. I saw specks of Real Red and wanted to draw those out. So, I added a Real Red butterfly to make that happen.
The Crushed Curry butterfly was added to give the card some balance.
I chose the Flirty Flamingo as the card base because although it is found in the designer paper it is not a bold color.
Lastly, I had to make that gorgeous butterfly shine, so I stamped it with Night of Navy.
I have never taken an art class or studied colors, but I stamp what I like. Stampin' Up! makes our life easy by matching papers and inks for us.
Thank you for your time. I would love to hear what you think.
This card is so pretty - almost has an Asian feel to it.ReplyDelete
