Roy G. Biv

Remember Roy G. Biv?  Hit me like a blast from the past when I saw the inspiration photo at Virginia's Challenge at Lily Pad.



So off I was on another long-and-winding-creative-process road.


The Hero Arts flower challenge still on my brain, I created this card first.  Used a little flower from CL131 to stamp the rows.  If you look carefully I forgot the "B" from Roy!  Velveteen stamping still on my brain, if you look closely you can see a few white on white stamped butterflies around the sentiment.  A little bling.  But I wasn't happy.


This was my second attempt.  Actually went back to the graphic flower from CL131 which I originally intended to use, although a flower top I thought it was more like the buttons from the inspiration photo.  Added some Perfect Pearl mist to make it a bit more interesting.  But still wasn't completely happy.  Needed more white space.


Switched to a different stamp, this time a button from Crafty Secrets.  Stamped the button is a somewhat rainbowy pattern, cut strips and came up with this design.  Think I was subconsciously influenced by the sketch at retro sketches - which I also intended to eventually play but I see I was too late.  Not perfect, but I'm done and this baby is entering Virginia's challenge!

On a side note, DD was much more creative than I with her Cookie Monster muffins.  Although they rose... then fell, so she couldn't slice them open to insert a cookie.  They're yummy anyway.


Thanks for visiting today.
