Papercraft Star challenge this week is using aqua. Check out their beautiful inspiration photos.
I am stocking up on cards for the Care and Concern Committee at church who sends cards to shut-ins. So I did a "thinking of you" card. I think it will bring cheer to someone's day.
I used a white card base. The aqua stripe is from SU. I used a cheery yellow in back of the stripe. After tearing a piece of white, I sponged a yellow from Studio G on the edges. The flower is the same yellow with the stem being colored with water color pen. Then aqua/white twine and a yellow button to accent. The flower stamp is Hampton Art Stamps and the sentiment is Inkadinkadoo. The layout was inspired by a blog somewhere out there but I just copied the picture and forgot to put the name on it. If it looks familiar to someone, let me know. I would love to give you credit. I print out pictures and layouts and tape them into a notebook for future inspiration.When I am stumped for a design, I just go to the notebook and look until something inspires me.
