Good morning! I feel as though this is the first REAL week of the new year. So many NEW things starting up for me. I have started a new bible study class, I'm enrolled in an online card class called Clean and Simple Card Making, Check it out HERE. I have a ton of new supplies to make cards (thanks to my sweet, supportive family and their generous Christmas gifts) and my husband is working night call for his medical practice all week meaning I have until 11:00 p.m. every night to get inky! Do I have a wonderful life or what?
Here we go! I want to share with you today the card that was inspired by the color challenge at CR84FN-(Create For Fun). I thought these bold colors needed a bold design so I chose an older set from Hero Arts: CL400. The center photo had me thinking all things Indian and this set includes an elephant, a small paisley, and this huge flower as well as several other very interesting line art images just begging to be colored with Copic Markers. I used B16, Y38, Y13, and touched up black details with 100. I wanted just a little shimmer (think of the subtle sheen of silk saris), so I added Sakura Jelly Roll Pen: Sky Star over the blue, and Sakura Glaze Pen over the black details as well as the sentiment. The equally bold sentiment is from Papertrey Ink: Think Big Favorites #7. The card stocks are also from PTI, Summer Sunrise, Blueberry Sky, True Black and SS White.
So there you have it, the first of the 2012 birthday cards. I hope you like it and would love to hear any comments or feedback you may have. Happy 2012 to you!
Thanks for stopping by,
