Hello and Happy Monday! I'm here today with a card that is, quite frankly, a bit of a stretch for me -- just something completely different than my usual -- and that, my friends, is the fun of it! :)
I was inspired by two challenges this week -- the sketch over at RetroSketches and the challenge to use acetate (or vellum) on a card at CAS-ual Fridays. I love the card by N@ Ali that was the inspiration for the sketch at RetroSketches and was drawn to not only the way she layered her shapes and embellishments, but also the COLORS (!) she incorporated.
I knew I wanted to be as bold with my color choices as she had been with hers -- and what better way than with alcohol inks?? Enter the acetate. Perfect. :)
Here's my take on both challenges:
I love the chunks of color and the Maya Road wood veneer butterflies (I colored them with alcohol inks and then coated with Diamond Stickles for shimmer!) are the perfect accents! Super fun and very different, no?? Hope you like it! :)
Thanks for stopping by -- here's hoping your week "promises" to be a colorful one! :)
(can't help the cheesy -- rainbows are promises, after all! :)
