Prima Bedtime Stories - Card



Trendsetting  With Colors at Prima
(You can find the original post here)

Pantone's 2015 spring spread is out and Prima is right on top of the trending seasonal colors. 

This is a card I created to fit the trend with soft peach tones.  It's with the Bedtime Story collection.
This collection is sweet, soft with a great vintage flair.  I thought I would create a card in keeping with that feel.

I thought the resin frame would add a great vintage touch.  My ribbon is seam binding that has been misted with Cotton Candy Color Bloom Mist.

Experimenting With Color - Blitsy



Experimenting With Color

Have you ever struggled with color choice on a project - trying to decide which colors to use?   I'd like to share my recent color confusion.  I started on a card using IndigoBlu stamps and Tim Holtz inks. My first inclination was to go with my favs, browns and oranges.  But I stamped a second image and went with blues and purples. What a dramatic difference. 

I have a short 6 minute video showing the color comparisons using stamps and inks. I think you'll be surprised.  You can find more information on the  Blitsy Discover page  here
