These aren't colors I usually work with, but they were perfect for the card I had in mind for the Inspired By...Challenge.
Here is the creation that inspired my card:
The card was made by Zoe and shared on the Make It Crafty blog a bit ago. The image is Lizzie With Gift and it can be found in the new MiC store here.
Here is my inspired card:
Of course, I can't come close to Zoe's amazing coloring, but I hope I didn't embarass myself too much! I started with Melon Mambo CS and layered with a bunch of patterned papers from the Webster's Pages Botanical Christmas/Fairy Tales Petite Papers pack. I also used festive trims from some of my Webster's Pages Trim Cards. Lizzie was printed on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. I added some Stickles here and there for a little sparkle and that was it.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a safe and enjoyable New Year's Eve and see you again in 2012!
