You Are Precious

Sunday, 27 April 2014

Hey Everyone,
I was really excited to see two of the amazing challenges coming together and bringing up this fantastic inspiration picture and the sketch by lovely Joni to play along. Yes, I'm talking about Runway Inspired Challenge#58-Trina Turk and Cas(e) this sketch#73.



I was bowled over by the inspiration provided by all the DT members and also by the cards linked to the galleries. After seeing all those amazing cards, I wondered if I could come up with anything close to it, if not better. I struggled for a while, then suddenly started visualising the provided sketch as a lady's head with a flower bow on it. That's how this came up. And I'm really happy it turned out the way I had imagined it to be.

Here's my take:


I took a very minimalistic approach to the inspiration sketch and picture. For making this, I hand-drew the lady silhoutte on a black paper , fuzzy cut it and stuck it over the card base. Yes, I flipped the sketch 180 degrees. Then I punched out two vellum flowers, coloured them with distress and memento inks( spiced marmalade, fired brick distress inks and picked raspberry memento ink-for simulating the floral colours in the pic as much as possible), arranged them over the silhoutte and finally centered a blue coloured pearl over it.I love the coloured vellum, it has a very delicate and dreamy feel to it.  Added some bling and the sentiment finally.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me kind words on my work. :)

Have a great day!
