If you love this photo, you too should give this week's Tuesday Trigger a try. It's a two weeker, which gives you plenty of time to play!!
You can see that I drew my inspiration from the color palette. I used the bold yellow paper and paired it with a soft rose background stamp. In the inspiration photo, you'll notice that only a touch of black is in there. I, too, just used a little bit of black.
I also drew inspiration from the pleating on the coat. To mimic the pleating treatment, I ruched the yellow satin ribbon, which also added a soft fabric texture - just like the coat.
One of the gallery idol contestant's cards also served as inspiration. I initially found the card on Pinterest, but I after digging a little deeper, I learned it was a top 20 finalist in the Gallery Idol competition. It was create by Clare Buswell. I love the layout and used it as a sketch for my card.
I hope you enjoyed this. I probably won't be posting for awhile. I am the arts and crafts teacher for my church's VBS and then I will be vacationing in sunny Myrtle Beach with my fam!!
