I've always loved the look of clean and simple cards with bold backgrounds but thought it was a look only possible for grand watercolor artists. Not anymore! It's such a simple technique to achieve when "Stamp Around the Block!" It's really as simple as 1, 2, 3!
Simple. Bold. Beautiful! First up is Sapphire & Fern:
The next color combo I used was Saffron, Sunset, and Ruby inks:
And one more using Thistle, Gypsy, and Pacifica. The butterfly was stamped on a leftover piece of Saffron, Gypsy, and Thistle paper. A simple outline with a black journaling pen finishes this card off.
I hope you've enjoyed my project! Which color combo is your favorite? What color combo would you like to see? Leave me a comment to let me know. Now it's time to visit Haley Dyer's blog to see what she's come up with!
