   Irresistibly Yours DSP 2-5/8 x 5-1/2

   Highland Heather


   Water Painters
   Iridescent Pearls

First, let me assure you that there is no right or wrong way to make a card. Many have asked me where my ideas come from, or my ability or creativity to put it all together. Funny, I used to ask those very same questions myself. 

Let me just say, there is inspiration all around you. Look at your environment and find the colors that look great together. Look at your stack of printed paper and choose a color or two to use and accent on the paper. Better yet, look for a color challenge on SCS or your favorite craft site.

For this card, I just chose two of my favorite colors and used them. The DSP has an emboss resist on it, so I watercolored it, set it aside to dry, and then wiped it down. 

The card was assembled like this to meet a sketch challenge. I then sponged the whisper white panels with Highland Heather and added some iridescent pearls.
