Colour Blocking

Today I’m sharing a card featuring colour blocking, which is definitely one of my favourite looks. I’m teaming it with navy and rose gold, a favourite colour palette of mine.

I took a piece of Lawn Fawn Blue Jay cardstock, and trimmed it down to create two panels.

On one panel, I added some stencil detail with the Altenew Scallop Builder stencil and Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink. This ink looks more light blue on the blue jay cardstock, so if you wanted bright white, you could use white embossing powder instead.

I used the Lil’Inker Designs Deco Edges to add a fun edge to both pieces of card, then layered some rose gold glitter paper behind each, die cut with the same deco edges.

I added both panels to a white card base, then added a stamped sentiment below from Avery Elle Loads of Wishes, using a dark blue ink to match the card stock.

I finished with some enamel dots in complementary colours. Some tonic nuvo drops or sequins would look lovely too.
