MCV67 - Merry Christmas
This week's Muse: ChristmasVisions inspiration comes from Cornelia:
Sometimes, a challenge becomes a real Challenge, doesn't it? This one did for me!
I love Cornelia's geometric, artistic style, but that dark green is really not a colour I love. I don't really do deer. So I was stumped. For a long time!
When this happens, I try to break down the card into its components - colours, shapes, feelings. I look at products I have that may help to create a similar feeling, even if everything is not exactly the same. I minimize or ignore the elements that are not my favourites (or I can't get to work!). Usually I can end up with something that feels like 'me' and I'm happy with it.
I decided to focus on Cornelia's
-triangles and geometry
I minimized the green and made the brown of the deer into my card base (no deer were harmed in the making of this card! lol!)

I can't wait to see how you've all interpreted this one - I always am impressed by your creativity!
