The Card Concept - Challenge 4 - Floral
Time for the next Card Concept Challenge! Let's go floral!
Very pretty inspiration photo - lots of circular blooms with lots of layers. To interpret this photo into Clean and Graphic, I cut down to one flower, punched up the colours to achieve high contrast and used basic, simple shapes from Retro Mod Shapes, from Stamplorations. I added a sentiment in text that has a similar weight as the flower shapes, and then to ground the whole thing, I used two score lines (the top one is interrupted where the 'y' drops down).
Now it's your turn - are you finding your style? I can say that having to explain why my cards are Clean and Graphic has definitely made me think a lot more about the differences between the various 'Clean' styles we have. It's still difficult sometimes to determine exactly where each card fits, though, isn't it? But don't let that keep you from trying - we love beautiful cards in ALL styles!
