Color Combo; 10 of 10: Elizabeth

We are going crazy with delight over color combinations.  From simple to dramatic, from bright to light, the hues are sure to tickle your rainbow.

This is what I call my "ooh la la" color combination.  

I love the look of pink, rich red and crisp black together.  To soften the overall design, I decided to create the sentiment elements in a dark grey.  This allowed the bold border edges to stand out as well as not deter from the focal element of the vintage bird cage.

By paper piecing the die cut birdcage with two colors, the element remained delicate yet colorful.  

Tip:  To give die cuts subtle dimension without losing their delicate design and becoming bulky, use two different thicknesses of paper for the color piecing.

All the colorful details, Penny Black products, instructions and supplies can be found in this project guide HERE.

We hope you have enjoyed our color combo event and have found some ideas that tickle your rainbow.
