OK, I caved! I signed up for Pinterest! I spend WAAAAy too much time on the computer, looking at blogs and searching for ideas, so I really tried to resist. Papertrey Ink has caused me to spend too much money on their stamp and dies and things, here they go influencing me, again! What I did not know is that you do not get an account right away. I have to be on a "waiting list"! Seriously? Might they decide I am not good enough? Or creative enough? Or offer enough? Whatever! So, for today's Papertrey Ink contest we needed to pick a Pinterest image and make a card from that image. I know this will BLOW YOUR MIND! But.... I chose Dawn McVey. Isn't that card above one of the prettiest you have ever seen? I LOVE that card. The picture above the card is from her Pinterest board. I make my own version. TOUGH competition!
So, here it is:
This is a 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock base card. A 4x5 Raspberry Fizz mat is adhered to the front, I wanted more of the white card base to show to resemble the white baseboard. A white Half & Half die cut was layered on the mat, to mimic the white frame of the chair. It was stamped with a linen colored ink, like the background of the wallpaper. I used the new Celebrations die and cut blue paper like the pillow on the chair and layered Rosie Posie flowers around it. The leaves had some flaws I didn't see until I took the picture, I tried to repair them and also add some shading like Dawn did. Haha, I won't be doing that again, as you can see on the close-up shot!
All in all, I like the card. I can see where if you take items from the pictures and interpret them, you can get inspiration. I hope it does not become a new addiction... IF I get off the waiting list! ;)
Thank you for looking at my blog!
