First and foremost... HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY! Eh, i do have a card dedicated to Mothers' Day however it is a special order for someone. So i can't share it yet! However, I will share another beautiful card made for one of my customer and i am so glad she loves it because she requested to have a card with the sentiment reading "Let's sail away from the past and sail towards our future.". So once i saw this phrase, first thing that came to my mind was to do something with boats or red & blue or sea kind of card.
Brain-storming starts and if you follow my page on facebook, you would have seen the sneaky preview whereby the papers i used initially was just plain red and blue cardstock and the image was uncolored. I must say that i had to color the image 2-3 times before i got all the elements (sky, water, boat) correct. The blue of the sky was either too close to the sea of the colors of the sail didn't seem to blend to with the background. All i can say is to keep trying and take a break if you have been coloring for an hour plus. Walk away and come back when an inspiration hits you.
The side view of the card. Very satisfied with the dimensions. And it was after i punched the borders that i realize they were perfect for inter-twining twines! Best way to create waves...
Colored the image with copics and the sea had a little stickles to make it shine. papers from Studio Calico and DCWV. Hope I'm keeping you inspired!
