Bold and Graphic

April 11th, 2012

Happy Hump Day! Today I want to share my favorite card from those we created in my March Class.  I was inspired by several cards in the galleries at SCS (especially this one by Mary Brown and this one by Kay Kalthoff) to pair Field Flowers with the Doily Background.  I decided to try something a little bit on the bold side.  It’s funny when I first stamped the Island Indigo flower over the Lucky Limeade doily, I said “oh no…this is NOT going to work!”  But then I looked at for awhile and started playing with layers and added a few Kaiser rhinestones and I ended up loving it.  A lesson in not reacting too quickly, I guess.

Clean and simple for sure.  I love the bold graphic look of this.  I’d encourage you to play with colors.  Try some things you think won’t work and sit with them for a bit before you throw them out and move on.  You might be surprised.

Thanks for stopping by.  I’ll be back tomorrow with the monthly TE Calendar Challenge.
