Today was a good day! 🙂
I was watching a lot of Gina K. StampTV tutorials – they are simply amazing! They give so much inspiration and fill me with creativity! I was out most of the day, but as soon as I came back and after a few minutes of sketching and figuring out the colour combinations I decided to do a project for a new challenge I saw a few days ago – by Fusion. Finally a challenge with butterflies!! 🙂 I love butterflies, I must post my “old” greeting cards that I made last year, which all had butterflies on them in gradual colour combination and different compositions. I love colours and I always thought, well if you are sending somebody a birthday card, a thank you card or especially a Christmas card it should be happy and colourful. Well after watching some of those tutorials and brilliant card projects I saw some that really blew me away and were not THAT colourful! Some did not even HAD a colour on them – unless you think black is a colour haha (in my colour pallet it was not!) but I really changed my mind. Here is an example of why – StampTV – Season’s Greetings. Amazing example of how you can work with black card stock and some silver embossing powder and make the card wonderful!
Back to the challenge, here is the link for #4 challenge and this is what the sketch looks like:
This is my interpretation of this sketch where I combined both sketch and the photo in some way:
I had a lot of fun making this card, I love the whole process, from composing, choosing colours all the way to the stamping, cutting and putting the whole project together!
If you like what you see please drop a word or two, it will be most welcomed 🙂
I hope you all had a great weekend and I wish you a great upcoming week!
