Beautiful Friendship Meets Grapefruit Grove and Granny Apple Green. As it is so hot in the UK at the moment I wanted to bring some brighter, more Tropical colours out, so thought I would try this colour combination. I like it!
I would not have tried it if I had not seen a card made by one of the Artisan Designers, Ashley Van Camp, on Pinterest. Her card was a similar to mine, but the colours were a little more subdued. I loved her design though, so thought I would try something similar.
I love how the two main colours ‘zing’ off each other. Having made the card, I went to have a look at the colour theory behind the combination and found out why these work well together. They are Analogous, which are three colours that are side by side on the colour wheel. Apparently, this colour combination can be overwhelming. The suggestion is that to balance an analogous colour scheme, one colour should dominant, while the others are accents. Which is what I have done, by accident! The third colour I used is Mango Melody, which is the ‘meat’ between the other two colours.
I did have to do a bit of fussy cutting, but these are easy shapes. As long as you remember to move the card, not your scissors, most shapes are easy enough to fussy cut. Some Grapefruit Grove Ribbon and some Clear Droplets finish the card off. Oh, did you notice I used one of the new 3D Embossing folders to add some texture to the Whisper White mat. I think it lifts the whole design from OK, to OK! If you love this stamp set as much as I do, I will be featuring it in my next Creativity in a Box, so keep your eyes peeled.
