Everything will be ok? Yes, even if we can’t see what OK is yet.
What a wonderful quote/greeting for a card. It’s from Really Good Greetings. It’s a new stamp set. I had the card sentiment in mind for a while now, just needed to find the right avenue to create it in.
Since returning from Convention, things have been rough, really rough. Each day brings something new. I am so missing the energy I received from my trip. It was zapped pretty quickly. An expression in a card should be a positive step in the right direction, correct? One can only hope! I need some positive mantra to grasp!
Ok, back to the card. My sketch design comes from an old favorite, Freshly Made Sketches. This is number 97, just getting it in under the wire! It’s a clean design to work with as always. It seemed perfect to showcase the sentiment I was feeling.
Now, the colors. I had originally played along with colors more somber. Then, I thought, heck no. I’m trying to feel better here. So, I was going to peruse other blogs for a color challenge. First one I came to, Dynamic Duos! That works. Strawberry Slush and Daffodil Delight. Perfect. Seems several of my cards lately have been these colors! You can add one neutral, so I went with black and the chalkboard technique. Which, I have not quite mastered as beautifully as others.
I am pleased with the outcome of this card. Simple. Clean. Makes a statement. Now, it goes visible to where I can see it. Sometimes card makers need a card too!
