House of Cards May Challenge
It is time, once again, for my part in the House of Cards monthly challenge.
Check out this beautiful inspiration photo:
This is a gorgeous shot, but I gotta tell you, these colors are hard for me. Yellow is my least favorite color to work with. Purple pulls up a close second.
I was struck by the kind of ethereal quality of the photo, with the blurred background. Tried to go with that.
Between coloring the bird and getting the splats right, I think it took about 5 tries. I colored the bird on the back of vellum and smudged it about 5 times.
I am not patient when it comes to waiting for things to dry.
So, here is my card:
Even as I was putting my last version together (having waited for everything to dry) I was sure it wasn't going to work. But, once I got the vellum leaves down, I really started to like it.
I added dots of Stickels in ice and pink. A cheery sentiment and antique button finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by and be sure to head over to HOC to see what else the DT has come up with for inspiration.
