Color Crush Inspiration

Through Pinterest, I have found a few color combo sites. One of these sites is Photo Card Boutique who publishes Color Crush Palettes. They posted this palette yesterday. I loved the photo as well as the colors!

It was just the push I needed to try a technique I’d been thinking about.

I’m sure those who use Copics all the time already know that they dry on vellum, but I wasn’t sure – and I really wanted to try coloring vellum with the markers. I was so happy about how easy it really was. To add some interest to my circles, I spritzed them with rubbing alcohol. This gave the circles a great texture (very much like salted watercoloring).

I went with a “thinking of you” theme because the circles (I call them bubbles in my head) are the perfect muted, sedate color palette.

The Color Crush Palette photo helped me with the layout of the card as well. And I chose to embossed the card base with the wood grain because of the photo.

Thanks for taking a peek!
