July22I’ve been having a browse on Pinterest today and one of the design techniques that caught my eye was using colour blocks with stamps.  I saw a few designs where a coloured design had a piece highlighted with a raised section that looked really effective.  I thought I would take it a step further and have a play with a plain flower and only colour where the blocks are.

I stamped and embossed in black my Stampendous Jumbo Daisy.  I did this once on the white card I had already cut to size for my 5×7 card blank and stamped two more on separate card.

July22aNext I cut out my squares so they were in the correct position and identical sizes.  I also stamped my greeting – I thought this one was perfect!  It’s from Chocolate Baroque Artistic Affirmations set.

Next I mounted all the pieces and cut so each had a tiny black border.

I then coloured the blocks with Cosmic shimmer drawing inks as I knew the colours would be vibrant.  I assembled the card and added a few gold gems onto the greeting as a finishing touch.

It’s a really dramatic card – I really like it!  Will be playing again with colour blocking I think!

happy crafting
