Hello and a very happy new year everyone! Erum here today and we are going to kick start this new year with a bright colour palette for our January 2018 Inspiration Challenge. My card today features the Spring Daisy Stamp Set mainly.
First and foremost, do you recognize the graphic? It is from one of the cards I made last year. Sharing it again below:
You can read all about this card HERE. I thought it would be great to start off this year with a colourful palette right after Christmas, therefore took out this card from the archives. I hope you like the colours enough to give it a go :)
Here is what I came up with this time.
I followed the same floral pattern more or less. While the first card had a bouquet of flowers, this one has more of a vine look to it.
I stamped the images from Spring Daisy, Coral Charm and Beautiful Day onto watercolour paper with Permanent Black ink. I then watercoloured the images with Distress Inks.
Next, I fussy cut all the images leaving a white border. Also, I added a few black paint splatters to my one layer card front. You can avoid this part and use the coordinating dies, I didn’t have all the coordinating dies so went with fussy cutting.
Next, I stamped the sentiment from Sentiments & Quotes Stamp Set onto the same cardstock as the base. To emphasize, I cut this sentiment out in a strip and adhered it to the card front with foam tape.
Then I arranged my floral vine. There were quite a few ways I could do that but I chose to go with the corner right setting.
After placing all the images, I added some rainbow sequins and confetti to my project to balance the colours.
I took way too many photos of this Spring Daisy project, here is the last one. As long as these are helpful, more photos never hurt :)
I might share more projects over the month, based on the inspiration graphic so keep an eye out on this blog.
I hope I got some of those creative juices flowing! Can’t wait to see what you guys come up with.
