Birthday Blooms by Stampin’ Up! #CCMC430
Yay it’s Thursday again and time for another challenge from Create with Connie & Mary. This week it’s a colour challenge. Challenge being the operative word! These seemingly innocent colours had me stumped at first. They just scream of the current season I think, because my first instinct was to go with the season. I was trying to come up with something using Spooky Fun and whilst I could have come up with lots of options, Hallowe’en, Thanksgiving, Autumn/Fall (it’s such a versatile set when combined with theHalloween Scenes edgelits) they had all seemed to have been done before. So I pumped for Birthday Blooms by Stampin’ Up! instead.
And whilst the card I’m posting today isn’t the most original of designs, it is out of season (for my part of the world anyway) and that’s ok with me! Rebel without a clue! Lol!
I really don’t suppose you get purple and orange flowers on the same plant in nature and that may be the reason why I half like this card and half don’t! What do you think? At first I thought it might just be because it was a little dark whilst the ink was wet. I used a blender pen and ink picked up from the Stampin’ Ink pads to colour it in. I then went over it with the clear Wink of Stella pen.
Does it just look slightly unnatural and therefore a little off – or does it not really matter? Artistic licence and all that?? I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on this!
Please do pop along and see what the rest of the vastly talented design team have come up with this week at Create with Connie & Mary! Thanks for stopping by!
