Anyway, I'm here to share the card I made for Jackson's Digital Expressions. I am excited to have been invited to be a featured designer this week as part of their big July Release Party! I will be sharing cards this week that I've made with the new images that were released in July. Today's Anything Goes Challenge #12 has an optional color inspiration.
Here are the colors:
Here is my card:
I got in the right color families, but I have a bit more pink than the red in the photo inspiration. I started with a card base of SU Not Quite Navy and layered patterned papers from the Kaisercraft Miss Nelly 6.5x6.5 pad. My elegant image is Vintage Hat V from Fine Arts by Robert Jackson. You can find it in the Vintage section of Robert's store here. I printed it on Copic X-Press It Blending card and colored it with my Copics. I added a bit of White Opal Liquid Pearls to her jewelry and around the scalloped frame. Otherwise I kept my embellishments to a minimum. The sentiment is from Create With TLC. It is part of the Retail Therapy which you can find in Paulette's store here.
I used Jen Del Muro's July Sketch For You To Try (SFYTT) for my layout:
My card is also for Copic Challenge #47 on Suzanne Dean's Color Me Creative Classroom which is to color with navy and/or dark blues.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to visit Jackson's Digital Expressions blog and check out all the fantastic DT creations and all the events that are part of the July Release! There are lots of challences to win fabulous prizes!
