Color Coordinates: Soft Colors for Year Round Cardmaking

Welcome to the blog my friends! It’s Shari here with a new color coordinate combination. I have been waiting to do a color blocking background using an ink blending tool, so I chose some colors that sit well on top of each other.

They are all pastels and are pleasant for many occasions.

The technique used is quite simple and is a great jumping point for those of you wanting to ink up a quick background. I started out by using my Rectangle dies cut from cardstock to create a quick stencil. I also used some Post-It tape to adjust the size of the openings to get a variation of the rectangles.

Once I had the background colors blocked out, I trimmed up the panel and put it on a top folding notecard. Next, I die cut the Bright Blossoms die from Neenah card stock three times and glued them together. This gives the flowers nice dimension. I did the same with the Script Thanks die and mounted it to a strip of cardstock colored with Sea Glass ink.
