Create easy cards with artistic looks with Ombre Designs in Color Theory DSP
This card is my entry for this week’s Global Design Project #GDP088:Case the Designer Shawn Oliveira. My inspiration came from both Shawn’s card and the Design Team’s cards that featured ombre looks. I took the easy route by using some of the very artistic papers in the new Color Theory DSP Stack. These papers offer artistic looks that allow you to create cards in a snap! In shades of Berry Burst, Old Olive, Crushed Curry and Dapper Denim, this Designer Series Paper Stack is sure to be a “must have” when the new catalog launches June 1st!
Using the Rose Garden Thinlit created a big bold look with just a single cutout. The “Case the Designer” card Shawn did used gold foil paper and Paper pieced solid colors underneath. A great look you should check out at Global Design Project :
For my card, I wanted to use the Rose Wonder Thinlit, but I wanted an easy to create card. The Color Theory DSP gives you a lot of choices to create an easy, but beautiful look. I settled on the Berry Burst “Paint Chip” paper with the Old Olive Ombre Paper. The look is much more subtle in person, which I would not quite catch on camera! But the combination of the In Color “Berry Burst” makes a fabulous color statement when paired with an old favorite, “Old Olive”. I can’t wait to do Autumn and Fall themed cards with this combination!
