Thank goodness for Kristie at The best things in life are Pink! I was about ready to give up on today's OWH sketch and her card inspired me to turn the sketch on its side, which worked.
First, let me show you first two cards, that are just, well, OK:
I used alcohol inks and an air compressor to create that wild background. The "Hello" sentiment fit in, but I had no idea what to do for the second rectangle, so I created a mosaic with bits of paper. Hmmm....now my next card:
The flower is a transparency print. The Hello is from Hero Arts and I thought a script font was more feminine, but I'm not sure about those butterflies?? That second rectangle was driving me crazy!
My third card is better after flipping the sketch:
The lights and sentiment are from Technique Tuesday's Bright Idea. I made the bottom chevron with a Hero Arts stamp and different colors of Distress Ink.
Thanks for reading all the way through my blogpost. It's nice to get inspiration from another OWH cardmaker - that's why I read almost every post!
Tomorrow starts another online card class for three weeks! Yippee! They're so much fun. If you want to sign up, go to Online Card Classes.
