For this layourt, I just wanted some solid block colours, so they were bright and popped from the page.
To contrast that, I wanted to keep my neutrals very basic.
So I stuck to painting for my brights and raw chippie (with very little inking) for my neutrals.
I love the Pop Art Alpha, so I used one of my favourites, CB Pop Art Stripes Alphabet and inked that with just a little bit of Versacolour Pinecone.
This is my favourite ink for leaving chipboard raw as it just defines it enough to make it stand out.
I also inked one of the new CB Buttons for my top corner.
In contrast I painted my CB Frills Corners and CB Retro Leaves in teal and red to stand out against my green background paper, those colours are so beautiful and bright against each other, dont you think?!
The paints work so well with Buzz and Bloom chipboard. The chipboard doesn't absorb too much or go too soggy when you paint on it like some others do. I just use Kaisercraft paints and they work perfectly together!
So why not get your paints or inks or mists out and have a go at the same colour scheme? It's a sure fire winner!
