My immediate thought was to grab some flower stamps and create a really pretty summery card, but then I thought why not try something different and this is what I came up with:
I'm thinking a cool teenager might just love this. I used the lighter two colours to stencil a background and then over stamped the image in rose red.
I've been debating with myself about whether the sentiment should have been rose red too, but whenever I use colours for sentiments I always wish I'd used black - can't win really!
Stamps: Visible Image, teenage kicks
Inks: SU, rose red, blushing bride, so saffron
Stencil: TCW, mini mod spirals
So your turn now - how will you use the colours? There's more inspiration for you from the CAS Colours & Sketches DT and we have a fabulous Guest Designer Fiona joining us for June.
Thanks for looking. And keep crafting!
Wow, stunning card! Great colours and really striking images, Jo x BTW, this wouldn't look out of place over at the current Naughty or Nice Challenge.ReplyDelete
I love it! What a gorgeous innovative use of the colours and what an awesome stamp! Caro xReplyDelete
Fab one layer card! Great alternative take on what I thought were very feminine colours xReplyDelete
This is a FAB teen card and I love that you went outside the lines with this colour combo. CAS & OL perfection - LOVE IT! Hugs Bev xReplyDelete
This is really wonderful for a teen. Love the main image and the stencilled background.ReplyDelete
This is totally rad (though I'm pretty certain today's teenagers do NOT say that; oh well, my age is showing :). This is such a fun card - love the stenciled background! I too have problems with colored sentiments - I've come to love brown and dark grey as alternates to black.ReplyDelete
I love your modern non-floral take on these colors! Your bold use of the rose red really makes your card stand out among the DT thumbnails! Awesome job, Jane!ReplyDelete
Really fun and rebellious card - I think that the black sentiment is great, it makes it stand out more than the rose pink would have.ReplyDelete
