After trying my usual "get out of my creative rut" tricks, I turned to a few of my favorite cardmakers, and decided to find an inspiration card to pull me in a new direction. Danielle Flanders is one of my favorites right now... lots of white space, pops of color, unique embellishments, and layering. This card really stood out to me, so it became my starting point. I am entering my card in this week's ColourQ challenge:
I really like the masked chevron background that Danielle created with her Center Stage cover plate die, which I also own. I used my Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist in Coral to create the background for my card. I stamped the sentiment, from Basket of Blessings, with Ranger Archival Jet Black ink. The flowers were made using the Lovely Layers stamps and dies. I wanted the coral chevron pattern to show through the flowers, so I used light weight vellum (instead of white cardstock) for pieces of the flowers. Two Papertrey Ink buttons and a handful of enamel dots, from My Mind's Eye, finish off the card.
