I was able to combine a couple of SCS challenges in one card today. The Inspiration Challenge gave us a Pinterest site of gorgeous pottery bowls to be inspired by, and the CAS Challenge was "Christmas in July". I chose this pottery bowl for my inspiration:
It immediately made me think of alcohol inks on Yupo so I started
playing around and tried to mimic the design on the bowl - way more
difficult to do than I thought. But I ended up with some nice pieces, one of which I turned into this card:
The pointy shape of the bowl made me think of a Christmas ornament - perfect for the "Christmas in July" challenge.
It needed to be a CAS card so I had to leave lots of white space. But I also needed some way to "hang" my ornament. So I dry embossed a holly branch on white cs and attached the
ornament with gold cord, and popped the ornament up on foam tape.
A simple sentiment and a border of shimmery green finished it off.
Thanks for dropping by today.
