Today's One Layer Wednesday challenge, hosted by Susan of Simplicity fame, is to do a card inspired by a picture found on Marta's Boards at Pinterest.
I am really uncomfortable with inspiration photos! First of all, I have trouble zeroing in on which to be inspired by and second, I'm not real sure what to do with it when I find it! Am I uptight or what? I tend to just copy what I see and I'm not sure that's the point of the whole thing. I did this card inspired by this picture.
When I finished with the wreath, it seemed a little to dense (thick, not stupid) to me. So I tried again.
It's still not as lean and simple as the inspiration, but I liked it better. I used the Stamp-a-majig for the first card and just eyeballed the second.
I'm not pleased with the birds. I should have left off the feet and inked them in tan. Those tails make me think of a Carolina Wren instead of the Chickadee I was going for.
But do you see what I mean. I pretty much did my version of the card I saw. Not much inspiration there!
I did another that is a bit more creative and not so much of a copy. I'll share that tomorrow.
Stamps: Sweet Summer, So Happy for You (both are Sale-a-bration sets), You're a Gem
Ink: SU Markers (Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Basic Gray)
Paper: Whisper White
Accessories: Eyelet Border Punch, Blender Pen
