Hello, and welcome back! I have two cards today inspired by this sketch from Retro Sketches #125. For this first card, I made the sun rays from patterns in the Confetti Celebration papers and also stamps from the set Ray of Sunshine. For the stamping, I stamped off once after inking, sprayed the stamp with water and then stamped between each paper ray.
To finish it off, I added the greeting in a speech bubble and some gold sequins. I'm still loving the Ray of Sunshine stamp set, both the images and the greetings. The color combo here is Crushed Curry, Strawberry Slush, Tangelo Twist, Basic Gray and Gold.
Here is the sketch from Retro Sketches I used to inspire my cards. Isn't this a cute sketch? I love starting with either a sketch or a color combo in mind.
For this second card, I started with the sunburst image in the Kinda Ecclectic Stamp Set. After stamping it, I added baker's twine stitched through some of the rays and a yellow button for the center. The Color Combo here is Daffodil Delight, Coastal Cabana, Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral and Gold.
There is a lot of texture on this card. Both butterflies have twine added, vellum for the greeting and also gold sequin trim. Isn't this a happy card?
What inspires you to create? Leave me a comment to let me know. Well, that is all for today. Thanks for stopping by!
