It's my pleasure to host the Inspiration Challenge this week & I found sooo much to see it was hard to decide..I finally went w/ THIS as my inspiration.
After I colored the lilies, I fussy cut them & set them aside. I will mention, when fussy cutting a detailed image, I always start w/ a craft knife & cut out the internal pieces that I wouldnât be able to get w/ the scissors. Then the rest is cut using a very small pair of curved blade scissors. Think decoupage scissors & it works much better to turn the paper, not the scissors, when cutting. On the background, I chose a couple of yellow inks & 1 light grey ink to sponge the colors in. I started w/ the lemon & brought it in from the bottom right & let it fade to white as I went over the mid section. The citrus was added at the lower right. Then I used the grey to come in from the upper left, again letting it fade to white as I approached the lemon. After it dried, I stamped the greeting. I die cut the white deckle frame, popped it up a bit, then tucked the lilies under & over the frame. The lilies are also popped up. A few sequins finished it.
Thanks so much for looking. It's on my blog w/ Copic colors & more pics. (p.s. it's also a blog hop): The Write Stuff
