Simple Color Blocked Card

I went back to a technique I haven't used in awhile, color blocking.   It is such an easy technique to do, and I needed a simple masculine themed card and I thought this did the trick.

I started the card with a card base of Crumb Cake Card Stock, and then added a layer of Riding Hood Red.  Next came my layer of Very Vanilla and to do the color blocking, I punched a 1 1/4" Square onto a piece of scrap paper and sponged Basic Gray ink in the opening the punch created onto my Very Vanilla layer.  I then punched a 1 3/4" Circle and sponged Riding Hood Red in the opening, and finally I used my Big Shot to cut my Scallop Rectangle Clearlit and sponged Not Quite Navy into the opening. 

You can create any type of design, just make sure to use a large enough piece of scrap paper so that when you are sponging your ink into the opening you don't get any ink into areas you don't want covered. 

The following were used:
