Color Blocking Technique

The color blocking trend in fashion trend is nothing new,
but it is one that has always caught my eye.
 
I remember making a color blocked dress for one of
my Home Ec classes in college way back when....
they were still calling it Home Ec!
 
 
Depending on how the colors are laid out, I think it can
be flattering regardless of your body type.
 
Of course color blocking is not just limited to the
world of fashion.
It can be used very successfully in your home decor
to create a very dramatic look without spending a lot
of money.
A little paint, pillows, area rugs, and inexpensive fabrics can go
a long way.
 
 
 
The latest rage is color blocked nail art...
 
 
Quite pretty I think!  
 
Well anyway, let's get to my little ole' color blocked card....
 
 I used--
Just for Fun Torn Edge Square stamped with
Tim Holtz Distress Inks Bundled Sage,
Barn Door, and Tumbled Glass 
Stampin Up's Garden Silhouette stamped with Chipped Sapphire
Sentiment from Paper Trey's Botanical Silhouette's Anniversary Set
stamped with Barn Door
Stampin Up's Itty Bitty Background dots in Barn Door
 
Tip: If you are not using a clear stamp,
 it's easier to stamp the bottom square first and work your way up.
Get down low and look at the rubber from the side for correct placement.  
 
You can also make a template out of a Spellbinders die or a
Post It note.
