Hey guys! Today I wanted to pop in with a very clean and simple design that packs a punch thanks to high-contrast coloring that makes the central image stand out against all the white.
I started out by measuring the inside space of the scallop oval die from Pretty Pink Posh that I used to frame the image, and then placed the digi stamp from TiddlyInks on my “card base template”. For my printer, I have set up several templates (just for the front a card (panel), for entire folded card bases (landscape, portrait), etc. so when I want to print something, I don’t have to reinvent the wheel every single time but can just grab a print template and slap on my image.
Since I knew that the image would be the focal point of the card, I made sure to pay special attention to how I colored it. You can see that, despite using bright colors, I also made sure to deepen the shadows quite a bit to create the illusion of dimension, and I made sure to have very bright and clearly defined highlights. The combination of both will give you image depth and dimension.
I finished up by cutting the oval window in to my top panel, and mounting it with foam onto my card base. I added a single dot with a Stardust Gel Pen into each scallop, simply for some subtle texture.
Thank you for stopping by today! I hope you got inspired!
