First up is my card for RIC #2. When I first saw the inspiration photo my eyes were immediately drawn to that gorgeous green purse the model is carrying and I wanted to make that color stand out on my card. Then I was struck by the pattern on her dress and lastly the odd purple eye make-up. Even though I'm not a fashionista by any stretch of the imagination I can appreciate a perfectly designed outfit. However, I do not understand why some of these designers have to do things like crazy eye makeup!! Anywhoo... I had an idea, but sadly I have been experiencing alot of bad headaches lately which generally leave me feeling completely untalented and so I struggled to get my card actually made. Today I was feeling normal enough to get it finished. I cut a piece of pale yellow cardstock and stamped it with an image from the WPlus9 Design set Background Basics 1 that reminded me of the pattern on the dress using grey ink. The sentiment is from PTI's Gracious Vase and was stamped using purple ink. I brought in the bright green by tying some grosgrain ribbon around the piece before applying purple and green rhinestones.
I haven't done a Tuesday Trigger challenge in ages, but when I saw the current inspiration photo I just had to play along. I took my inspiration from obviously the stripes and from the cute little Peter Pan collar on the dress. I found cardstock that matched the colors in the dress fairly closely and cut thin stripes of each. The bottom of the card was punched with a medium sized scalloped punch and then the stripes adhered in the same layout as the dress. The sentiment on this card is also from Gracious Vases.
