Taming A Bold Color Palette

Inspiration:  A need to get out of my comfort zone!

  • Sometimes I find it difficult to work with bold patterned paper like many of the designs in the Playful Palette DSP stack.  There's absolutely nothing wrong with bold colors and patterns; it's all about personal preference.  If you're like me and struggle with them, "tame" them a little by using a softer color or neutral card base.  Also, keep the main image as clean and simple as possible.  The beauty of the Playful Palette DSP stack is that it includes bold patterns and some more simple patterns on the reverse sides.
  • I used my MISTI to line up the easel and the greeting.
  • Lay a piece of copier paper over the left edge of the easel so the tail of the middle stroke doesn't stamp on the actual easel or outside of it.
  • The main image and green layer are attached together and then popped up from the card front with dimensionals.
