Electric Blue Persuasion – a botanical card with a twist

First off, I’ve updated my Ippity sales page to clear everything out! I’ve got a few new projects on the go, and once my stock is cleared out, I will not be selling Ippity any longer. There are some fabulous sets there, and free shipping for orders of three sets or more!

Also I’m sharing a project on the gel-a-tins blog today! Go check it out when you’re done here!

I wanted to share my second botanical inspired card today – it’s pretty avant-garde for me but I like it. I was inspired by the same photo as my first card, but using a different aspect of the photo.

See how her dress has that lovely embroidery in tan on the green fabric? It got me thinking, though I ended up using copper on electric blue:

I won’t tell you how long I messed with the colour combination – I wanted to use the rest of the colours in the inspiration photo, but I ended up feeling better about this neutral supporting cast of colours.

Nothing says trendy like traditional images mixed with funky colours. I think it’s a fun twist on the botanical theme for Moxie Fab World’s Fanatical about Botanical challenge.
