PTI MIM #292: Color Blocking Three Ways

This week it was Laurie's turn to share a technique challenging us for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. Her examples show three different ways to apply color blocking to our projects. 

Why is it that even though I manage to enter these challenges, I never seem to have the right cards on hand for the occasion? Perhaps it's because I can't keep up with all the sympathy cards needed lately.   Sad but true. Therefore, I made two different cards using color blocking.

Card #1 (using card stock)

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Soft Stone, Spring Rain, Enchanted Evening, Comic Strip Patterned Paper Collection and Vellum
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black and Delicata Silvery Shimmer
Stamps: Beautiful Butterflies and Jolly Holiday
Dies: Life Is Beautiful
Other: Nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss Black and Foam Tape

Nice cards, I like that you used patterned paper for one of your "blocks".

Kathy, I didn't even think to use pattern paper for color blocking. Your butterfly looks amazing. I like how you shadowed prayer on your second card, it looks nice on your ink blocked background.

Both lovely, Kathy--great use of the color block technique! I especially love the first one with the beautiful butterfly!

I'm sorry you need many sympathy cards~that's a tough season to be in. I pray it eases up. However, these cards are beautiful and I know the recipients will be blessed~
