I am knee deep in Color Theory products and writing about different color principles in preperation for my Color Studio class at Studio Calico, and I've got a quick stamping technique to share with you today. Once I got my hands on the new inks, I had to put them to work. What better way to put them through their paces than with a rainbow stamped background? Here's how to get this look :
The Color Theory Ink bundle has sold out, but they are now available individually! You can grab all 12 gorgeous colors here. From top to bottom, I used Well Red, Blush Crush, Orange County, Sunny Day, Yes Peas, Mint Hint, Emerald City, Something Blue & Deja Blue (the names are as good as the colors, right??)
The stamped background does most of the work on this page - I just added some Color Theory enamel dots and paper and embellishments from the Copper Mountain kit and Fremont Glades add-on to finish it off. Going tone on tone with the patterned paper and enamel dots keep the background from being overwhelming, and a few well placed embellishments help draw your attention to my photos.
Want to learn more techniques for using color? Join me in the Color Studio classroom! We'll be sharing technique tutorials and videos in addition to 8 secrets of using color on your projects. This class has been the perfect antidote to all the snow and gray, and I am getting excited to see what the students do with the ideas we'll be teaching. Registration closes on Feb 28th - I hope to see you there!
