Creating dreamy cards with just two colours.

Creating dreamy cards with just two colours.



Hi there, Today I am focusing my post on creating with just two ink colors, some times it's easy to throw everything at a project and get lost in tons of colour so right now I think stripping it back and creating a dremy/serene feeling would be good.



I started by creating the background for my card using the Birch Forest Stamp. I used two ink pads in light blue and a light minty green, I used Sea Breeze which is found in the Deep Blue Seas collection and Mountain Mist from the Sea Shore collection


I added ink to the stamp in different areas allowing the colours to overlap in places and blend together, this gives a really cool effect. You can use a finger dauber to soften the intersection where two colours meet but I found with these two particular colours I didn't need to.



I stmped the Eucalyptus Jar image onto Neenah Solar Crest card using an alcohol proof ink. I then coloured the image using llight grrens and blues inkeeping with the background. I added a strip of blue card to the left handside of the card and a circled sentiment to the right side.


Will you be trying a limited colour palette? If so please share you creations on socil media using the #madewithsevenhills hastag.
