I saw a card on Tuesday or Wednesday that gave me inspiration to try my hand at using tonal shades for the flowers on my card. I just love the look of these and have tried the cool gray shades before. I do not have the earth tone shades I wanted so I thought I would see what the warm naturals would look like.
I stamped my image for He Has Risen onto Classic White paper, I colored with Copic markers W1, W3, W7, RV63, RV69, and a touch of C7. I cut the floral portion of the image out and adhered it to the Classic Ivory cs. I inked the edges of the oval after gluing the image. Not the best choice but once the image is down I was not about to move it. It worked very well. Then I adhered the oval to a Lacey oval shape.
Have you ever made a design choice but was not sure how it would look and once it is done you can not undo it?? Plus I was not about to remake the whole thing if I ended up not liking my choice. That was the case with using Nestabling for the first time. I was happy with the end result.
I love the fact that most of those 6x6 pads of paper everyone has have enough styles and colors in them that all but your neutrals, in this case the white and ivory classic cs, can come from one pad. They even have the dark burgundy paper I wanted in it, but since I just wanted to use a small portion and most of it would be covered with the stripe, AND I have plenty of scraps waiting to be used I did not "waste" the larger sheet for this card. I may want to use it later in another project. I know, I know by the time later comes I will have bought different paper and the saved burgundy will sit on the shelf.
