I just received an order from a clearance sale at Spellbinders. As is usual with me, I ended up with just a few sale items and a number of full price items. I don't why I do that but if I'm ordering from a place I don't usually order form, I'm going to order everything I might want. The little poppy bud on this card was on sale - the sentiment which is part of a larger set was not. I wanted to make a card right away because I wanted to model my little stem on a sample they had before I forgot it. I like the way the small and large buds are mixed and there are actually more branches that the buds are covering up.
I did the small picture at the top because I wanted you to see that there was blue in the background. My inspiration is from Color Throwdown which includes blue and I was afraid you'd miss it on my actual photo! It's much more obvious in real life but after taking pictures in natural light yesterday and artificial light this morning, I just can't make it pop. BTW - the gems are actually soft yellow ... same problem!
Thank you to The Color Throwdown for the inspiration!
