Fifth and Final Card for Blog Candy -- Plus Inspiration!
Here is the fifth and final card for my Blog Candy drawing. Read about it in the first post for today!
Today's SCS Inspiration Challenge was this dress.
You might be thinking, "Wow, I don't see the resemblance at all!" But it started with the little blue flowers and went from there. I intended to use brown and pink as well, but the card had a mind of its own! The diamonds came from the diagonal line of ribbon on the bodice. And the top and bottom striped layers on the card from the flounces on the bottom of the dress. So I was inspired -- to make something you have to look hard at to find similarities! :)
The flowers were stamped and then color pulled from the ink with a watercolor brush.
