A great inspiration card over at Muse this week by Carol Mayne which gave lots of avenues to go down:
I was drawn to the vertical nature of the focal image, the jagged edges of the feathers and the use of multiple colours.
When I came up with my idea I thought it would be quick and simple to create, but how wrong I was. I used my Silhouette to create 4 card layers with the arrows cut out and then inked up one of the cut outs with Distress Inks in Barn Door, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Salty Ocean and Seedless Preserves. So far, so good. The idea was to layer up the coloured arrows with the plain ones left over, creating depth on the final card:
I had no idea how long this would take and my time was very limited. Once it was completed though I was very happy with it. The card is simple, but the dimension makes it crisp and gives it an edge.
As an added bonus I was able to use the left over cut out pieces to create a second card:
When I had put the waste down I noticed that the overlaid arrows made a new pattern and I loved the look when it was layered over colours. I love it when nothing goes to waste!
That’s it for today, let me know what you think! Cx
