For my card I combined a few of the lessons- Making a Window Scene and a little bit of Background Building.
I thought the flowers and leaves from Adore You would be great to make a little window type scene. I found some old oval dies from my stash and used those to create the window element. I didn't want my window opening to be a single colour though, so I blended some Faded Denim and Tumbled Glass distress oxides. I blended the lighter colour in the middle first and then blended the dark blue around the edges.
I coloured my leaves and flowers with various alcohol markers. I coloured more than necessary since this allowed me to pick and choose which flowers looked best together and also allowed me to play around with the scene building. I decided that I liked two flowers on the bottom left and three flowers on the upper right best.
Next, I decided to make a subtle stamped card front using some darker grey cardstock. I really wanted the colours to shine in the scene I made. Lastly, I decided on a sentiment from Many Thanks. The larger greeting was stamped directly on the background and the smaller sentiment was stamped on a banner and popped up.
I'm quite happy with my little scene and it reminds me of a pretty corsage that could be worn.
I thought I would make a sketch of my card, keeping with my old Sunday sketches. Feel free to let it inspire you!
