Alternative ways to add color and interest to your designs

by Hannelie Bester

Hi there!

Hannelie here to share my first card here on the blog as an official member of the creative team !
Alex ‘s digital stamps really make cardmaking a breeze! They are wonderfully versatile and good value for your money!
There’s a new release available in her Etsy Shop now with a wide variety of images perfect for anything from Valentines day to Spring … and from cute to classy!
I am not very confident in the coloring department. Let’s just say I know my strong points and my not so strong points in our hobby… and that’s the reason why I always look for alternative ways to add interest and color to my designs. I also know that stripes and flowers work very well together… so here’s the card I made for you today!
For those interested in the design part of the two panels…
I started off by opening the Winter Garden card panel in the Silhouette Studio.
I then traced the image to get cut lines. I used only the outline of the traced image and created a 1mm offset. After that I designed the sentiment using the fonts Goord & Angelina. I created an offset for the word ‘you’ and welded it to the frame.
After printing the two panels and cutting it out with my cameo, I lined both panels up, and added the stripes with my Altenew Watercolor Stripe stencil and Altenew inks in : Cotton Candy. Peach Perfect and Mango Smoothie.
I then adhered the upper panel to the lower using foam squares for dimension and I added the ‘you’, which was cut out with my cameo using black paper.
Sequins were added as final touch!
Thanks for popping in today!
