Go Bold or Go Home

Sometimes, it's fun to play with really, really rich and bold color...while still keeping things extremely clean and simple. Today's three cards demonstrate this type of play in action.

All three cards are colored with Tim Holtz distress inks in two shades to add some depth over a clear-embossed sentiment and holly. For a finishing touch, each panel was then outlined with gold or silver Prismacolor markers.

Simple. Bold. Festive.

Give it a try!
