I made this card for the Caardvarks rickrack challenge!! The only rickrack I have is this multicolored stuff. So I decided I needed to have some color fun!!
I saw my textboxed set from Papertrey Ink and realized that I haven't even used the stars yet ... so I decided to have fun with it. I started out by embossing the box with black ep. Then I cut out the stars using my hobby knife and matted the box onto a multi-colored sheet of paper. In real life, those stars are partly blue and sorta purple. Then I put this onto a piece of black cs. I then added the bottom strip of rickrack. But then what... I had a ton of space and some horrible balance problems. See this is why I need to learn more about design basics!! I was STUCK. I stamped the sentiment onto more of the multi-colored paper and stamped and cut out a tiny star to add to it. But where to put it?? Well I fiddled and farted around until I decided to add the second piece of rickrack at an angle and put the sentiment off to the right. I'm not sold on this card but it is definatly striking when it comes to color!!
thanks for visiting!!!
