It's RGB Time with Fabric Inspiration

Sometimes creative inspiration comes in unusual places. For example, I really like this fabric that I purchased for my granddaughter; but I like the colors a lot! What do you see?

These colors just make me happy! What I love about the Imagine is the ability to recreate these exact colors!

To review how to "find" the RGB value of the desired colors. First, open the inspiration picture in a graphic program (Windows Paint, PSE). Use the "eyedropper tool" to select the desired color. Open the color bar and it will read the RGB values. Write these down! In the RGB feature of the Imagine you can then scroll to the number by using the up/down arrows.

The card I created is a friendship card for a very special lady. It measures 4 1/2" square.

The Recipe:
  • Paper Lace pg 21: Lace 1 and its shadow @ Relative size 4.2
  • Elegant Edges pg 42: Book and Shadow @ RS 4.5
  • A Child's Year pg 65: @ Relative size 3, cut 3 times.
  • White cardstock
  • Ribbon
  • 2 Eyelets
  • Tim Holtz Distress Ink (for ribbon)
  • I-rock tool and gems
  • Tim Holtz Shimmer Mist
I hope you enjoy this approach to coloring your projects. Until next time, keep sorting those scraps and generating the gems!
