My plan for this one came pretty quickly - mostly because I love woodgrain backgrounds and I happened to have this set of three dies on my desk when I first saw the inspiration photo. The colors gave me a little trouble. I originally started with a plain wood background paper and tried to match the glasses exactly with tan and brown. It seemed so dark and somber, and I realized that I have made a big mental switch from browns to grays. I used to have a favorite brown cardstock that came out on virtually every card - but now I actually had problems finding it - strange how tastes change, isn't it?
Anyway, I went digging my piles of paper and saw this printed woodgrain. I don't use a lot of paper with scenes like this - but in this case, it solved all of my problems - LOVE the print and the woodgrain! Plus it allowed me to go back to my beloved grays!! I hope you can still see the inspiration in my card even though it took a few twists and turns along the way.
