This week at Craftin Desert Divas the Design Team is sharing our favorite red/pink combos with you! I know I love a good color combo and keep checking out the Craftin Desert Divas FB Gallery daily for your inspirations! I bring you my color combos today using oxide inks in this sweet valentine’s card using the Mice to Meet You stamp set.
I used a few great Craftin Desert Divas products:
- Mice to meet you stamp set
- fancy frames dies
- rainbow dies for the rainbow and large clouds
- puffy cloud die for small cloud
- hill scene 2 stencil for inked clouds
- oxide inks: spun sugar, worn lipstick, abandoned coral, & festive berries
- carnie sequins & love bug sequins
- wink of stella
- silver nuvo drops
- versamark ink
- memento black ink
I wanted the reds and pinks to really pop on this card, so I went with a lot of white for the background and accent dies. I started by die cutting Tim Holtz watercolor paper, with texture side up, with the stitched scallop frame. I then inked the bottom corner with the cloud stencil using worn lipstick & spun sugar going darker to lighter. Next I heat embossed the sentiment with silver using versamark.
For the rainbow, I inked watercolor paper with the 4 oxide inks, spun sugar, worn lipstick, abandoned coral, & festive berries and then die cut out with the rainbow die. I glued it down touching the edge of the card to give movement to the bottom half. I then die cut the large stitched clouds and smaller cloud adhering to the card with glue and pop dots.
For the mouse, I stamped with black ink, colored with copic markers, and fussy cut out. Next, I pop dotted her in the clouds and added silver nuvo drops on her buttons and added wink of stella to the smaller hearts.
My love of reds and pinks tend to go to the coral side and I hope you will give these combos a try on your cards! If you do, please share your designs using CDD product with us on the FB Craftin Desert Divas Gallery!
