I get asked a lot about where I come up with ideas for cards and other projects. Some of them I design myself, and some are cased or inspired by other artists. I use Pinterest and Youtube as well as my facebook groups to gather ideas. It always amazes me that we all use the same Stampin' Up! products and the projects are all so different.
This card was cased (copied and shared) from Windy Ellard. The Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (DSP) makes a really nice accent on the left side of the card, and helps to balance out the colours and make everything work together ....
I used Stampin' Blends to colour the images this time. Light Daffodil Delight for the bird, Dark Pool Party for the flowers and Light Old Olive for the leaves. There is no blending on the images, I just chose to colour them all in one colour. Blends are wonderful for colouring plainly like this, or for blending colours together in a seamless splash of colour. I also added some Wink Of Stella on the flowers. In My Opinion a card is never finished until there is some bling of some sort! I. Am. Addicted. To. Bling.
