Make It Colourful #23 - Colour Cast

Hello everyone, hope you're enjoying your weekend.

It's Saturday, which means another challenge at Make It Colourful, and this week the theme is Colour Cast. We are sponsored this time by the fab Whimsy Stamps.

What is Colour Cast?
Now, I have to admit, I didn't know what this meant, but it's to do with the temperature of the light on a subject - some lighting is warm, like incandescent lightbulbs, candles or a sunny day, and some lighting is cool, like fluorescent bulbs, TV/computer screen glows or early-morning light. 
Reflect the colour of light or background or elements onto your main subject/s.
So, I've done 2 projects for this challenge, using the same image and the same colours, but one I've coloured with a warm tinge and the other with a cooler look. I've used exactly the same markers for each, just added a warmer or cooler colour as well.

The card shows Tilda in warm lighting and I've made the frame around her a gold colour; and the little picture frame has Tilda in cool lighting with a silver frame. Both projects are basically the same: a Tilda image and Make It Crafty digi frame, the card has aged and distressed and hand-stitched papers, with computer-generated sentiments and a little lace, a couple of vellum/pearl flowers and a heart pin to finish it off, and the photo frame simply has some decoupaged flowers added.

Bron said...

Love what you did here, Carole, though I must admit the card is the fave - I'm a warm colour girl, if there is a choice! I think the fact you did a contrast in warm and cool tones, using exactly the same images and colours really makes them pop against each other. Have a great week - can't wait to see what you do next :) Bron

OMG!!!! Every time you upload a card I think it's the most fabulous coloring ever, and then you upload another one and I'm just blown have more talent in your little finger than most of the crafters I know!!!! This is absolutely FANTABULOUS, Carole!!!! Both cards are masterpieces and need to be framed!!!!
We finally got a little rain last night..almost an inch...yeaaaaa!!! Maybe that will help tame down some of the wild fires in Texas!! My Grands all went home last Saturday so I have actually had time to play...took me a day or so to get used to the quiet...LOL!! Hope all is well across the pond...take care and have a great day!!

How on earth did you manage to take that colour cast information into your brain with the ME, cos I am still struggling, lol

Whatever it means two gorgeous examples of Tilda.
