It's Ro back with you today to give you some ideas of how to tweak your cardstock. Take a look at these three pieces of cardstock:
|Creme Animal Print|
You might not think to use them together on a single project since they don't really all go together. But I looked at it a little differently. Just by adding a little color with some colored pencils (I used Spectrum Noir), all three pieces of cardstock magically meshed! Look at the difference between the bird tags.
Would you like to see whole card? I think I've teased you enough!
Here's how it came together. This is an 8" x 4" card. I cut the animal print slightly smaller and adhered it to the front of the card. I then added a little twine that I twisted and taped to the front.
The flower is so easy to make with the Tear Drops. And it balanced out the color on the card layout.
For the inside of the card, I added pieces from all three papers and blended them together.
Now that you see how differently papers can look with just a little touch of color, maybe you will have some new ideas on using papers that you never would have thought could go together!
I hope I was able to inspire you to do some thinking outside the box. See you soon!
