Hello crafty friends! My name is Peggy Emmerink and welcome to my Heffy Doodle blog series called Color Wheel Combos! I usually choose the colors for my card either intuitively or get inspiration from fellow crafters. But for this series, I wanted to get up close and personal with color by using a color wheel to help me choose colors that work well together. I hope to learn a lot for myself along the way. But I certainly hope you will enjoy going on this journey of discovery with me! Let’s get started!
For today’s card I went with analogous colors yellow, blue and green. Perfect for a forest scene. I started with a striped paper from the Spring Breeze Patterned Paper Pad cut to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4. I used the new Pretty Pawsome Dies for the background panel and masked off the sides.
I ink blended a few green Distress Inks and lay the new Trendy Tree-Angles stencil over top. I splattered the panel with some green metallic ink.
I stamped my images from the Happy Camper freebie stamp set (go score it while you can) and coloured them with my alcohol markers. I heat embossed the sentiment on black paper and cut a banner with the Little Label Add On dies. I cut everything with the coordinating dies and adhered the images.
These new release items are such an awesome addition to your stash! And they go perfectly with Heffy Doodle products from older releases. Go check it out!
Long distance hugs,
(Some say hi on Instagram!)
