Color Studies

Sometimes, it's fun to play with color combinations and see the difference made by color. It's especially fun when it's quick...simple layout, simple embellishment. From concept to finish, these cards took all of ten minutes, and that includes having to color some of the bling with Bics!

Pink, Purple, and Girly

Red, Orange, Yellow, and Hot

Blue, Green, Yellow, and New

I challenge you to do something similar this week. Play with colors, either analogous (three colors side by side on the color wheel) or something else. Doesn't matter. Just play.

stamps: Hero Arts (butterflies, Nature Prints), Papertrey (can't remember)
ink: Versacolor
paper: PTI white
accessories: rhinestones, misc. Bic markers


  1. All are beautiful. My problem is, I would need to figure out the design ahead of stamping and that would take me a while. You are gifted in that design comes easy to you.

  2. Amazing, the last colour combo is super, and I really need to try and do some great quick cards like these!

  3. Absolutely gorgeous, Susan! Simple, pretty, and they make me smile. :-)

  4. These are quite striking, each in its own way. Color is hard for me. I really admire the way you design cards.

  5. Ooh, my inner 12 year old girl loves the pink and purple one!
    The difference the colour makes is amazing.

  6. I'm giving you "a pass" on the butterflies today. These really work. I'm grateful I'm not inflexible....

  7. I envy you guys who know the color wheel. I'm just learning, and took the OWH ABCs of color lesson on Monday. Did an analagous card tonight. I'm liking this!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
