Copic Creations Challenge with Crafts and Me!

>> Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Thank you for reading on to my Copic Creations Challenge project!
For the past 2 challenges, we have worked with warm and cool colors. In my last copic creations post (which you can read here) I chatted about the color wheel and a little bit about color theory.
This week, the Copic Creations team is taking color theory one step further and asking that you use complimentary colors on your card.

Complimentary colors are the colors that are across each other on the color wheel. They are in essence, exact opposites of each other. The reasoning behind using colors that are the opposites is that they really make each other stand out. In makeup... if you use the opposite of your eye color, your eye color will stand out even more. If you have blue eyes, well... the idea of using orange may not suit your fashion ideas, BUT you can use a copper or even a warm bronze and get a similar effect. Or you can just use orange. HAHAHAHA.

Ok, back to PAPERCRAFTING. :D

The sponsor for this challenge is Crafts and Me. This UK based store carries all kinds of wonderful crafting products as well as stamps. But they are the EXCLUSIVE home to a line of GORGEOUS digital stamps that you can find HERE.

Here is my card using Hearts of Ice. Sentiment is from an old SU stamp set for anyone who is curious.

For my complimentary coloring, I used warm Yellows to create her blonde hair (Y21, YR23, E99) and then colored her hat and bits of her coat you can see with cool purples (BV01, BV13, BV17). Since her broken heart was colored red, I went with the complimentary color for her eyes which is green.

Here is a close up of the image itself...
You'll notice i added some dashes of white gel pen. Just for extra highlight effect. :D
I also added some liquid pearls around her hoodie for fun.

Be sure to join in on our challenge... up for grabs is 4 digitial images!
This challenge will run for 2 weeks!
