Color Blocking

Color Blocking-- the bold clash of colors and graphic, repetitive images. Lexi Daly shows how to create your own Andy Warhol inspired pop art card using an inside and out double masking technique for the perfect one layer color blocked design. While the soup cans are iconic Warhol, so many images will work for this bold, graphic look. And with all the colors to choose from, the possibilities really are endless!

Pointillism Play


Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Heather Nichols explores this idea of  stamping and use a polka dot stamp and other tools to apply color to stamped images in a dot form to color them in. Layering the colored dots together create wonderful blending opportunities that take your stamped images to a new level.
I have to say this is one of my favorite mater's techniques so far!!!! I used a piece of watercolor paper that had a purple splotch on the backside and I love the extra texture and interest it gives my flower.

Supplies~Year of the Flower-Violet- white embossing, Moonshine sequins and Kraft CS.
