Colourful everyday cards

Hi and Happy Wednesday!
Today I wanted to share with you two easy-to-make everyday cards I have made:


The patterns for the colourful panels are made using only one circle stamp by Visible Image. I stamped the image several times with black ink on white cardstock, letting the circles overlap each other and form random patterns:


Then I chose three matching ProMarker colours, and coloured the stamped pattern. I wanted the result to be light and bright, so I left many of the areas white. Focusing on one little area at a time and colouring without too much planning was very meditative!



The width of the coloured panel was bit larger than half of my card front. I trimmed the piece to size, mat on matching colour cardstock, and attached to my card front. For cutting the 'hello' word I used my die-cutting machine and little alpha dies. Done!

After finishing the first card I wanted to check how the card would look like when coloured with a new set of matching colours:


I think the result looked just as good!
And now I'm thinking whether I should make a few cards more using three different colours- blue, yellow and green perhaps?

Wishing you a wonderful week,
Hugs,

    1. Thank you Pri! Even though I love to play with paints and layers, sometimes is nice to make a simple project in CAS style. And colouring is always fun!
