Mixing Color Mediums, Elements to Make a Card Cohesive

I usually keep a bunch of scraps, embellishments, die cut pieces and stamped images around for future projects. Sometimes, I don’t know what to put together so I play around with composition mixing and matching elements together. That’s what I was doing when I made this one card.

I water colored the tulips using Catherine Pooler’s Party Collection inks (Fiesta Blue and Grass Skirt) and die cut them, then set them aside, Also, I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the petals. The vintage pattern paper I had for awhile and I had some green cardstock that I cut into a panel just shy of A2 size.

I wasn’t sure if I would like the color combos of blue and brown and green but when I kept playing with placement, I found that I really liked how this card was turning out.

The blue petals kinda makes this card pop out more especially with all the green. The sentiment strip I also had in my stash so it was so cool to have it ready cause it fit perfectly with this card.
