I just love the blue sky in this photo … it makes me think of photos I've seen of the Greek Isles - who wants to go with? lol
Here's my card for Altenew's May 2020 Inspiration Challenge... I didn't have the exact blue, but this one works, right? How about that Dotted Swirl cover plate? I just love that die! This time I cut a frame from the plate - the texture from the water color cardstock is too pretty to cover up completely.
I stamped a few of the images from Beautiful Day onto water color cardstock, and cut with the coordinating dies. That gorgeous white rose in the photo was a bit hard to recreate, but stamping it in gray seemed to help keep the little bit of shadow I added soft but hopefully effective. It was easy to see where the orange and bright yellow would fit into the scheme.
Thanks for the visit!
Your white rose is perfect, Michele! In fact the whole card is! Love that blue frame! Great idea to emboss it!
What a beautiful card! I love that blue. And the coverplate? Mwah, magnificent. The flowers and leaves are so, SO pretty! Excellent work, my friend. I'd love to tag along! :)
You had me at BLUE...and orange! Woohoo, love it! Those florals are stunning!
This whole card is PERFECTION Michele and just absolutely STUNNING!! I love the whole blue embossed frame against the stark white card base and then the florals are just perfect with just the touch of color! This card just couldn't be any prettier and one of my absolute favorites that you've made...LOVE it!! Hugs. :0)
First, I love your soft watercoloring on the blooms. Second, the design of the card with the frame and texture make it a star in my book.
Gorgeous card Michele!
Pretty card!! I do love it when you use that cover plate... put it on my list LOL!! This is a real pick me up after our snowflakes today :( nothing stuck around, but seriously... it's MAY!!
You did a beautiful job with this color palette and I love your blue frame...WOW!
White flowers can be difficult but you did it, Michele! That blue frame brings out the color in everything. It's such a gorgeous arrangement.
WOW! Fantastic interpretation of the challenge and I can almost smell that beautiful rose! I’ve got to add that dotted swirl cover plate to my mile-long my wish list - it would work for so many different effects! Take care : )
