Blog prompt #21

Todays blog prompt is... Inspired By Colour. Keep this craft related please :-) 

Ah, colour.  Back to choices again.  I cannot see past blues, particularly in the turquoise range.  Perhaps you've noticed the teal theme going on in the Blog and YouTube etc? Then you'll have spotted that if it's to do with craftywhippet it's pink!


But when it comes to card making then I have to think of what the recipient's colours are, along with what appeals to them. I've got some cards to make and I chose some nice ones from craftsUprint. What happens? My HP printer, which is only six months old, decides to act up, won't take the card and informs me that all 4 (fairly new) cartridges are faulty. I've contacted Amazon because I'm less than happy about this.


However, after that digression, back to colour - excellent information can be found at the Art Factory about drawing and colour - most useful for a crafter. Then there's the prism, which I'm sure you all love to see happening in crystal (remember the film Pollyanna with Hayley Mills?). And what about rainbows? They definitely come into the crafting arena as they can be photographed!









I needed to make a couple of cards for baptisms and thought I'd do something a bit different. I've bought the Tim Holtz Bigz Sizzix die of a Vintage Globe with the intention of using it for Christmas cards. I cut it out on really holographic card, which then reflects light like a prism and gives the most interesting effects.  The person's name, date and suitable text were added to textured blue-ocean card and this is the result.
