Hi friends, hope you all are doing well. As a crafter, I enjoy drawing but coloring intimidates me mostly. So I have been pushing myself to experiment with different color combos and play. Concord and 9th inks currently hold my attention and I am seriously loving them. The foam-based ink pads are juicy and colors smooth out even for larger solid images. Using these with my latest collection released with RubebrStamps.com, just makes me happy :-)
The cards I am sharing today were created over the course of 2-3 days, but all of them use the same color palette
Concord & 9th Wheat
Concord & 9th Stardust (I ended up using this one in some of them and lost track of which one was which because they kinda look similar in a different light or on different paper.)
Concord & 9th Sea Glass
Concord & 9th Buttercup
Black - I used the Ranger Archival Black ink on some and Maker Forte's Eclipse Black on some others, but either one worked equally well.
For all these cards, I used the 4 stamp sets from the Boho collection
When I was designing these I was inspired by all the pretty Boho style or Mid-Century Modern style wall art on Pinterest, Etsy, and even Amazon. So if you see similarities in the cards and some of those paintings, you can totally understand where it came from :-)
Here's my first card which I shared on Instagram:
I originally stamped some flowers on the top left side, but I didn't like them, so I fussy cut around the rainbow. Then I layered that piece with some piece of the same paper behind it. The edges of all of these were torn using the weird-edged rulers. (I will link them below. They are fun to use!) Finally, I added some embellishments with tiny confetti pieces in star & heart shapes and a stripe of decorative tape at the bottom edge.
I also stamped a similar design and made a tag:
Somehow for this tag, the surface is glossy and it blurred all my lines stamped with Concord & 9th inks, including the sentiment. I did go over the sentiment one more time with a fine-liner pen and will see if I can use this tag somewhere. Let's see.
I did one more thing with this same design & colors - I created a similar tag, but used it as a focal point on a card.
To add more interest to the background, I added some texture with Sea Glass ink and also sprinkled some sequins. This tag and also the one below was created with Canson Mixed Media paper and Scrapbook.com tag dies.
I did make two more cards with the same color scheme:
There you have it. Lots of different cards with more or less the same set of supplies. Do let me know which one is your favorite in the comments below.
