Look at these yummy colors!!!!
I also love the handwritten sentiment stamp...so loose and curvy with the rigid straight lines of the squares. Yay for contrast!
Here's the inspiration piece.
Note that I changed the colors a bit. I don't have an adequate mustard-y ink or a blue in quite that shade. But after pulling out my closest Hero Arts inks, I was very happy with the results. Note that the pumpkin pie and pool inks are opposites on the color wheel, and combined with two neutrals (wet cement and soft charcoal), they really are quite stunning.
I'm going to play with this concept for some more color combos: take complementary colors and add two neutrals. I wonder how it would work with others.
And let this be a lesson. If you don't have the exact colors to match, go with what's closest in your stash. It's OKAY not to be precise...better to play than not, and you might find a happy new color combo!
