Another Friday-Eve rolls around again, and hopefully scheduled post numero 3 has rolled on to the blog too! I'd normally be happy for Friday-Eve, but I'm heading toward the end of my adventure in Italy. Still, I'm hoping that by now I've had enough gelato to last me forever! :)
Enough babbling though. Let's get down to business. CASE Study business! We still have the one and only, Jennifer McGuire as our muse and I am LOVING it! So much inspiration! I hope you too are inspired by this fabulous card of Jennifer's and are ready to 'study':
Check out the original post of this card here.
I was totally floored by Jennifer's fabulous colour blocking. So trendy! I went for the same approach, injecting more summer colours into my design, (I was preparing for my hols when I made this card!) I also wanted to give the appearance of floating blocks of colour and experimented by mounting my design on a sheet of acetate. It's a pain to photograph, but looks kinda cool IRL!
- In order to exaggerate the floating panels of colour, leave a space in between each panel. The floating effect then takes place around all four edges of each panel.
- To guide your eyes to the focal point, place the sentiment panel on a bold colour and make the panel a larger in width than the others.
- Ooops! My embossing powder went a little crazy on the lower part of the sentiment but no worries; I covered my mistake by stamping the sentiment again in black ink on white card, trimming out the 'THANK YOU' part, and sticking it over the top. A good dollop of Glossy Accents also helps to convince you that it was part of the design all along....*wink*!
Thanks so much for stopping by here today. I always appreciate your visits! Hoping to catch up with everyone and everything in Blogland when I return to normality (aka Home!).
Ciao, peeps! :)
