LIM92 - Pink
This card is for this week's Simply Less is More challenge, to use pink.
My plan was to cut the Memory Box flower out of my basic grey panel, then cut one out in white, glue the white 'outline' into the negative space in the grey panel and then colour the white petals with Copics and attach them at the centre, with the ends rolled a little, for dimension.
It all went well until, alas, my first two colouring attempts were not at all pleasing. NOT. AT. ALL.
I changed my technique (actually, I mostly changed the colour I was using) and continued colouring and then just placed the petals I had onto the card to see how the shaded petals looked against the grey. I found it to be very striking and thought, why make more?
So this card is really the result of one of those happy accidents that happen when something you didn't plan takes you in a slightly different design direction. Of course I've had plenty of 'unhappy' accidents that took me to a place I didn't want to be! But isn't it nice that sometimes these things work out even better than you'd planned?
Today's One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by the Queen of OLW herself, Susan, at Simplicity - go over and check it out! My card for this week's challenge will be here tomorrow! We'd love to have you play along!
