Hello, I'm Angela and I have some hints and tips to share with you today on crafting projects to give to a colour blind person.
In our wonderful world of paper, stamps, cards and gift boxes we have a wonderful wealth of colour and pattern to play with. We make use of colour, texture and shapes to make amazing cards and other paper crafting gifts for our friends and family.
However, some people are not blessed with the same ability to see such a wonderfully colourful world as we do. Some people are colour-blind. There are 3 main types of colour-blindness making it impossible to see the differences between certain colours, the most common form being red-green. And a fourth, rare type where no colour can be seen at all, everything is grey-scale.
Making use of strong contrast, and mixing dark with light colours is the key to creating fabulous, wow factor cards etc to give to a colour-blind person.
