SAF 2016: Masterpiece Inspirations

Such great works of art to choose from with this challenge.  I decided to try a card based of this painting.

I really was drawn to the blue background that made the flowers stand out.  So I decided to keep my card pretty simple and make use of some rich blue paper to support a group of flowers.

I tried to add some depth to the stems by added shading with Copic Markers but that did not show up very well in the photo of my card.



SAF 2016: Gilded in Gold

This challenge with Daniel Flanders was a whole new experience for me.  I had never heard of the Plaid Liquid Leaf product before but it was easy to use and produced amazing results.  I did a fancy birthday card for my project.  I chose to gild the Garden Garland Die cut and then add some vellum layered flowers.  A little pearl pen for the center dots in the flowers and sequins finished off the card.


SAF 2016: Starry Night with Amy Sheffer

This challenge was so much fun. Amy's design was so beautiful I really just replicated her card as best I could.  I actually made four of these cards and each sky looked different but I loved all of them.  Here is my favorite.

For my background I actually used watercolor paints.  That gave me the most color options and the closest colors to Amy's lovely example.


SAF:2016 Master Color Recipes

For this Master Color Recipe Challenge I chose the following inspiration piece for my card.  I love all the blues and greens in this painting.

 For my card I ink blended the background, added some paint splatter and then added the doodle feather colored with Copic Markers.  I finished the card with a silver bow and a few sequins.
