The appearance of a card can be dramatically changed with the color that surrounds or compliments the primary image. Just for the fun of it we photographed the process that was used in creating the card in the previous posting.
It's easy to get overwhelmed by all the possible choices so start by picking papers and cards stocks that match the colors in the focal image...in this case the bowl of cherries.
Keep in mind that for each version nothing was glued down; just set on top of each other so you can check out how it looks. Keep doing this until you find a few that stand out as the most pleasing. We started with the sage green Inchie Note card, taking turns assembling the components using each of the 4 different patterned papers...always in this order...sage, blue, forest, burgundy...
Ok, now switch to the blue Inchie Note card
And now the forest green Inchie Note card...
And finally...the burgundy Inchie Note card!
Phew...lots to look at. However, if you scroll through quickly you will notice some characteristics in color that are probably more pleasing to you than others. Some that just 'feel right'. Now, take a closer look at those and then narrow it down to your favorite one or two!
Just curious...which were your favorites? Can you put it into words why you liked some more than others?
Remember...with art (like wine) there are no rights or wrongs...it's whatever YOU like!
