LIM118 - Complementary Thanks!


I wasn't sure I was going to get time to play along with Less Is More's challenge to use Complementary Colours this week. But I found this photo on Pinterest and that made it easy.



My colours are actually closer to the inspiration than this photo is showing - they look very blue. I used Aquamarine and Island Indigo cardstock and Only Orange for the letters (Soft Stone for the card base, to incorporate the colour of the headboard). I coloured the bottom half of the letters with a Copic marker to represent the 'fold' in the circle art above the bed.

So smart to use marker below the line, another color of cardstock would have been crazy to line up. I really enjoy the puzzle/inset look.
