At work, we passed The Hunger Games trilogy around and enjoyed it very much. Next up came 50 Shades of Grey, which I had heard was smutty. I figured it had some naughty bits in it but no big deal. After all, who reads a dirty book and passes it around to their coworkers? The people I work with apparently. I struggled through the first 40 or so pages but I just couldn't go on. The stumbling, blushing, simpering, eyelash fluttering
That brings me to spotlight cards. No, really it does. See, when that technique hit big, I thought it was just a way for lazy people to make cards: stamp the whole thing but don't color a lick of it except for this one small "spotlit" area. To make it really work well, I always though you should color the whole thing in using nothing but grays except for your spotlit area that would be a burst of color.
But no one ever listens to me.
The Fine Print: Puce is the color you get when you dunk the Easter egg into every single color of dye. It is sort of a purplish brown, but when you look close you can see the red, green, yellow and orange deep in there too. It ain't pretty. By the way, there aren't any naughty bits in the first 40 pages of 50 Shades of Grey. Butterfly stamp by Stamp Out Cute, colored in Copic markers, some colors and many shades of gray,but not 50 of them because I don't have that many gray Copics.
