OWH Boot Camp - Complementary colors

I still working on the Operation Write Home Boot Camp on Color Theory.  This challenge was to make a card using complementary colors.  For this challenge, I chose to use blue and orange and make another triple time stamping card.
These dragonfly stamps are very old rubber stamps, some mounted and some unmounted.  I made several attempts at this.  Here is the card I worked on last evening.  My craft room does not have good lighting for evening work, so I prefer to work in daylight next to a window.  Note the color differnce in the evening card.
That paper really did look orange last night!  I also managed to get ink smudges on it.  I'm looking for a dragonfly punch to hide my smudges.
I couldn't find a punch, so I put a gold sticker onto blue cardstock and fussy cut it.  Wings are popped on dimensional foam tape.  Not great, but will work.

  1. I like the strong contrast this combo offers. I can totally relate about daylight and working in the evening. Switching to a 'Sylvania daylight' bulb in my craft lamp helped but there really is no substitute for daylight.
