When you're scrapping with black and white photos, you can pretty much decide what colours you want to use. When it came to scrapping these photos you'll see below, I knew exactly what colour I would use: yellow. It was the signature colour of this year's Escape 2 Create retreat that I attended in March.
I grabbed three varying shades of yellow Core'dinations cardstock and got to creating my ombre-inspired background.
Just for fun and extra interest, since I wasn't using much patterned paper, the bottom cardstock is from the spotted collection and was pre-embossed with the large spots. I just gave them a light sand to expose the core.
The top two strips I embossed myself and I even embossed one of the tags. Can you tell I'm loving core???????
I added a touch of black and white to the layout also.
And for the record, those ladies in the photo were crazy fun! And they truly are some of the most inspiring people I've ever met. Makes me smile every single time I look at it!
