Can you believe its time for another Papertrey Ink blog hop? I haven't had a chance to participate much lately, but this month found the time. Below is the inspiration photo, quite colorful, and I had just been playing with my kaleidacolor pads a few weeks ago, so I pulled them out again for a few of the cards below.
For this first card I pulled out Giga Guidelines and a few kaleidacolor pads in Fresh Greens, Desert Heat, Cool Carribbean and Berry Blaze, to mimic the colors in the striping in the inspiration photo. I added an accent strip of Martha Stewart black glitter.
For this card I colored the tulips and the jar with the colors from the inspiration photo (dark to light green, blush, yellow, oranges, reds, pinks and aqua) using prismacolor pencils and put in one poofy element in the bottom right corner of the card with the pink ribbon. (Friendship Jars, Friendship Jar Spring Fillers, Background Basics: Botanicals, Say it With Style)
Using the kaleidacolor pads I repeated the word 'happy' from the Enjoy the Ride set and then used Birthday from Giga Guidelines, and it introduces the aqua or bright blue color with Turning a New Leaf. I almost had enough stickle colors to match the ink choices. In the case of the light green I had to use a container of yellow icicle stickles as I had no good color match. See the little pink accent at the bottom left? That was a oops as my strip of green was too short for the card. I'd like to say it was some deliberate artistic element, but it isn't.
That's it! I would imagine the hop is going to be a very colorful one considering the inspiration photo and I had fun this past week creating. Looking forward to seeing all of your artwork as well.
