Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Colour Clash Butterflies and Flowers
I don’t know if you’re anything like me, but I love to see colours that ought to clash work well together.
I’ve no idea what made me pull these 3 colours out, but I love the end result!
To give you an idea of how I work when I’m using colours as my starting point, I play almost roulette with my ink pad colour caddy…. Yes, I spin it and grab the first one that comes to hand! After that I’m a bit more selective, but I take the first one that I grabbed (in this case the Real Red) and then hold it up to the colours of the other pads as I slowly rotate it. Sometimes it can take a fair few rotations before something clicks, but today’s card was a pretty quick pairing when I had the red next to the blues and Lost Lagoon was the one that stood out most of all for me!
I know, so scientific huh….
I wanted a neutral, but rather than go the other end down to the soft browns, I went for Chocolate Chip to make the butterflies and flowers really stand out. And of course, there’s no stamping going on, but using the ink pads are an easy way to see how colours look together before yanking out loads of cardstock from my rack…
I know, the colours make no sense as far as nature is concerned, but as far as I’m concerned, there are no rules in crafting….
Finally I have 3 layers of cardstock rather than just one. It’s all about elevation for me today!
What do you think? Anyone else play colour caddy roulette??
