When I first tried the color blocking technique (back in January of 2007), I thought it was one of the most challenging things I’d ever done while making a card. But it was also a lot of fun, so I picked this technique for my WICKED technique challenge on the demo side of SCS.
I started out by stamping the three Flores Suaves images with black StazOn ink on Very Vanilla card stock, and coloring them in. I trimmed the paper down to size and decided to make my card a 5-1/2″ square, so that I would have room to add various “pieces” to the puzzle. I knew I wanted to use a vanilla hodgepodge designer label frame, and I used a 1-3/8″ circle punch to make the curved notches in the paper above and below the frame. I had fun measuring the different pieces of Juntos Designer Series Paper and fitting them all together on the card, while trying to maintain a 1/8″ space between every piece.
I do hope you’ll give this technique a try! Leave me a comment with a link to your project; I’d love to see what you made!
Thanks for stopping by!
