Pinterest Inspired - Wave
One of my cyber-friends, Deborah, pinned this the other day. I'm always fascinated by bright colours on dark backgrounds and I try to think of ways to achieve that look. These two cards are the results of this method:
Start with a 4x2 piece of white. Colour with copics (I started in the middle and went to each end - coloured yellow then green (then went over the edge of the green with yellow, to blend). Cut a 4x4 piece of black cardstock (second one was 4x3 7/8, to allow for the cut line in the centre). Glue coloured panel to white cardbase and then position black pieces (oh yes, I embossed the sentiment in silver before I put the black on the card).
For the first one, I really was trying to get the 'fuzziness' of the line in the original by using a grass border punch. Not sure I achieved that, but it's kind of cool in its own way. I think the second one (cut with my Creative Memories curvy cutter) is my favourite.
