OK, so imagine a luscious, satiny bow tied atop this cake. Or atop a card that rocks big, bold and beautiful colors. Like B/W and hot pink? Getting any ideas? How about this...
Happy Birthday, dear Vicki! This card of hers is the one I chose to CASE for our birthday celebration. Alas, my journey took a few detours. Interested? If not, just scroll down to my card ;))
So I'm thinkin' "black and white and hot pink with polka dots." Then I see this card Vicki posts and decide I have to incorporate the "gelatos, stamped and dry embossed" thing too. Hmmm - maybe some pieces die cut from a "techniqued" piece of CS, layered over something die cut from B/W PP??
At the same time I see the current challenge photo at A Sprinkle of Imagination and can't get it outta my head. Love that doodled feel... B/W, ya know?
Then enter AAA Cards. Have you heard about this new challenge blog? Vicki introduced me to it. Clean and simple with some twists. How fun. And here is Linda B.'s card to be inspired by this week.
SOOOOO. See the subway art look of the sentiment on the inspiration card? Ding, ding, ding... STAMPlorations SUBWAY ART: Dare blew into my mind. And dots, lots of them. But how to make the doodled flowers play a role too?? And of course a bow, cuz a Vicki-CASEd card must have one?? Well I veered off the big, bold and beautiful road and headed down the lotsa white space one. And this happened.
These are my wishes for you in your "new year", Vicki. Hope you had a very happy birthday ;))
I'm hooking up to the two challenges which inspired me. To clarify, at A Sprinkle of Imagination you are to use at least three of the colors. I colored the centers of the black blooms lime green, but ya can't hardly see it in the photo :( I'm also joining in at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where it's about "botanical bliss". I think Ashli's project over there inspired me a bit too ;)
Have a wunnerful weekend, all.
