Building Contrast

Earlier this month, The Color Room offered a palette with some interesting colors (#75). These colors were so strikingly different from one another and I thought I would really challenge myself to create a bold layout, using a dark, dark, background created with Shimmerz paints, and then highlighting all the elements with other Shimmerz hues. 

The background was a pale colored corrugated cardboard prior, but after adding lots of Vibez in Before Dawn, Hot Fudge, and Pearlz in Toadlee, it was this deep, delicious color.

I then used Blingz in Under the Sea to highlight lots of the cracks within the cardboard, and do my dripping around the cluster, creating a beautiful contrast to the dark brown background. To add a bit more visual interest, I dipped the cap to my Under the Sea Blingz, into its paint, and stamped onto the background for fun. :)
