Lisa's Inklings:

  • If you are using designer paper on your creation, let the colors in your selection lead your choices for embellishments, inks, card stock, etc.
  • When in doubt, limit your color choices to 2-3 colors.
  • Remember that contrast is important to make your layers/elements stand out unless you want a monochromatic look.
