Inspiration Journey today!

Yesterday I wanted to play along with the Christmas Muse card this week. This week there the card was by the very talented Kimberley. The card was not my normal style but I was in the mood for water colouring so decided to give it a go. I was mainly inspired by the water colour effect and the foliage in the left hand bottom square (see below). I came up with this:


I embossed the leaves and sentiment (from Happy Little stampers Mixed Christmas sentiments) and then water coloured. To be honest I am not happy with this card but I wanted to share with you how this card led me to the card below-which I really like and it makes me happy. This is what happened-I was looking at my water coloured card thinking I am not happy with this and then decided-why not just stamp this following the same design and adding some holly and a few gems. I did this and created this card, which I do like. So thank you Kimberley for inspiring me to make 2 Christmas cards!


I will enter both of these into Muse Christmas Visions and 52 Christmas Card Throwdown-green and red challenge.

I will enter the second into One Layer Christmas Card

  9. The first card is very different from your usual style, being all covered up in colors. But I do like this artsy kinda look and it's always nice to try something new. Your second card I would recognize as a Sandie card anywhere - clean, white,elegant and with a super layout!

  14. Hi Sandie - I think both your cards are super. I love the softness of the watercolour version. However, I really do think the perfectly CAS version is so you! Great work. Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week, and I'm sorry to be so late commenting xx
