Papertrey Ink November 2012 Blog Hop

Yeah! I am back with my second post today, participating in the Papertrey Ink November Blog Hop.

This month Nichole Heady challenged us to take inspiration from cover art to create a project. She gave us these options to use, or we could come up with one of our own.


November-hop-inspiration


I hope you guess that I was inspired by the Liars poster.




I already had vellum out to use on the card I posted earlier today, and ribbons of color fluttering on the poster completely captured my attention and I knew I could capture their spirit with colored vellum.

I did start out layering free formed ribbons, but it just was not flowing the way I wanted it to.

When I went looking for a die that might work & found my Mega Gracious Vases die set, the design really came together quickly.




A piece of teal ribbon helps anchor the vases and a greeting from Birthday Bash Sentiments embossed in white on a Hawaiian Shores cardstock base finish the card.

I love that you can clearly see each vase and that there is such a range of color created by the overlapping pieces.

I am off to see what everyone else has done!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie

  11. What a great idea to use vellum for the vases, since they are transparent in real life as well. Such a striking effect! I can see putting this card on my window sill and looking at it often : )
