This week the Creative Inspirations Design Team A has been challenged to make a monochromatic card with ribbon or lace.
I combined the CI paint challenge with this week’s D2D (Designed2Delight) image which is a cute cat.
I colored the image with Copic Markers in yellows and yellow-oranges. I added Certainly Celery for the grass and sponges a sky with Blue Bliss. I used my color chart to match a paint to accent the cat, and was surprised to find the match on my Brown’s page with Burnt Sienna and not with the oranges.....
I also highlighted the flowers with Buttercup CO paint and the butterflies with Fairy Dust. I added a little Crystal Effects over the paint on the butterflies and the middle of the flowers. I also added glimmer to the Pumpkin ribbon with Angel Dust CI paint. Perfect Birthday card for my little niece who adores cats!
Here is a close up of the glimmer on my Feline:
***Creative Inspirations Paint is having a Design Team Call- it is a great DT- term is 3 months beginning in October- you create cards with the theme given using whatever images you choose. Information HERE on the CI blog***
