We are working with this picture for inspiration this week and it's a great colour combo and perfect for my project today.
I decided to use the lovely newly released 'Pink Candy Hair' Mermaid which is available in the QKD Store right now, you might like to add her to your own stamp stash, so do pop over to the Store after you finish the Hop. *** there's a massive 50% off stamps right now, and we are so excited at the news that all stamps sold after 1 May will be in rubber! So what are you waiting for, get over there and pick up a bargain! ***
I coloured Candy Hair with Copics and ProMarkers in these lovely rich colours and added touches of Spica glitter pen here and there.
I have to say I don't often create a card using no background papers, but I wanted to replicate the lovely crisp contrasts of the bright colours against the white background in the inspirational picture.
I cut this lovely frame from blue metallic card, with a nestabilities frame die and mounted it using foam pads to raise it up from the base card. The blue flowers and metallic centre flowers are from my stash.
So there we have it - a plain, simple but effective layout using a beautiful image to create a card which could be used for any occasion.
I'm now sending you hopping along to Kimme's blog to see what gorgeous creation she has to share with you today. Thank you for joining us in the Hop, don't forget the rest of the DT do their Hop tomorrow and you can start once again over on the QKD blog and just follow the links.
