Iron Craft is all about learning techniques from the best. I just love Christina’s beautiful color co-ordinated cards. So for the opening episode of this season of Iron Craft we are playing with color!
Christina and I are both using the same color inspiration today. Here is the inspiration:
Source: Design Seeds Global Tones
We are also using the same stamp set — Papertrey Ink Happy Trails
Here are our cards — mine on the left and Christina’s on the right!
I got the idea for my design from Pooja when we were discussing art we did in school. Drew the design in pencil first then colored it with Copics. Then traced out all the border lines in black gel pen to make it more striking. This was the easiest way I could think of to use up all the colors in the color scheme 🙂
