CDAC INSPIRATION CHALLENGE

This is my second entry into the CDAC INSPIRATION CHALLENGE, and I decided to challenge myself this time ... to CASE the inspiration picture:


and this is it:



The digital image featured on my card is the sunflower of the Sunflower Digi Set of 3 from the Priscillastyles store.  I coloured using Spectrum Noir markers and added some textural stuff (I have no idea what it is called!) to the centre of the flower.

For the rest of my card, I used offcuts to create the colour swatches at the base, offcuts for the mats behind the image and a the background was coloured using eye shadow powder.  I used a fixative to prevent the colour coming off and smudging the rest of the card.

The sentiment was generated in MS Word.

  9. Love your card! I would never have thought to put the swatches at the bottom, but I really like the effect. It adds a nice touch of the bright colors that could be lost otherwise.
