It's time for a new CAS-ual Fridays challenge! This week's challenge is to use color blocking. I cruised around Pinterest looking for inspiration, and I ran across this pin:
I love the color combination (and I would pretty much kill for those pants!). From watching way too much Project Runway, I don't think color blocking has to actually involve blocks, so I went with triangles on my super graphic card:
It's hard to tell from this photo, but the color-blocking is one-layer. I used AUDacious Designs' Quarters template for the three triangles. I stamped on them with a digital brush to add a subtle texture (and I know, there's really no texture, ha ha). I color matched the boxes using the photo. If you want to see how I did it, I have a video tutorial (see my Digital Tutorials above).
I die-cut the "hello" from Paper Smooches' Quote Tag Dies in black. I wasn't sure about the black, so I made another card and die-cut 4 layers of white cardstock. I got the inspiration from JJ's Paper Smooches card (although mine's not as thick or cool):
I'm not sure which I like better. Which do you like better?
If you'd like to do some color-blocking of your own, you can link up to this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge. The winner will receive some CAS-ual Friday Stamps:
