If you follow Jill Foster's blog, Inspired By, you will notice that she switches back and forth between all sorts of coloring mediums from pastels, to pencils, inks and paints. Today she is taking advantage of the bright color qualities of Dr. Ph Martin's Hydrus Watercolors on a white ATC size Art Square that she stamped with a Penny Black image in waterproof ink.
By using a vivid contrasting color for the background, rather than a subtle neutral, and then a simple jute tie in the same color, she completely elevates this image. It's a good lesson for the rest of us to not be afraid to use vibrant colors.
And don't forget to 'go off the edges' with color because an Art Square is a solid core material and you can actually color the sides!
