My first SCS Inspirational Challenge. I had a really tough time with this one, but I am not quite sure why. I think it may be because I had thought about it too much when I first saw the challenge. All these ideas popped in my head. After a couple attempts at a card, this is what I ended up with.
Inspiration (IC142 - Marimekko Umbrella) and card:
I stamped the card with Rhonna Farrer Flowers with Stazon. Then colored in some accent points with my Copic. I doodled the edge of the card to try to mimic the style of the stamp and the umbrella. I wanted to keep the card simple so I pulled out my Stardust pen and colored in some accent spots. Popped up the large sun-looking flower, added a silver dew drop and tied a little ribbon. I wish I had a different color ribbon though. :-/
I was having trouble with the result since it seemed like too simple of a card, but I think I kinda like it now. :)
