Aaaaah... 'tis good to be getting back into the swing of things. It's been a while since my energy and my mojo have worked together and I've been absent through necessity. But I'm picking up my Copics again and slowly getting back to business, I hope.
And what better way to come back than with a Mo!? This card is my entry for this week's One Stop Craft Challenge, where the theme this week is (you guessed it!) Snowflakes in September.
'Dani with Gifts'
Paper: October Afternoon, 'Ducks in a Row' collection
What a super image! This is perfect for any teenage girl or young woman - bright, fresh and happy.
As soon as I saw Dani, I had this paper in mind. I wanted to use the pink polkadot in particular - luck would have it that the reverse is this beautiful pink and grey design, which gave me the overall colour scheme for the image. It was easy, peasy, lemon-squeezy to get this one done! What a welcome relief, after all the mojo-less days I've spent over the last few weeks.
Pink and grey reminds me very much of the 1980s - even home decor ventured into this particular colour combo - including my bedroom! So it must be time for a comeback - everything else '80s' is returning, including some of the more, er, questionable fashion statements! I mean, did we ever really look good in harem pants!?
A bit of colour with her packages just lifts the image, which might otherwise have been a bit too pink and grey, and a nice pink satin bow adds the finishing touch!
So, I'm off to link up before bedtime - early nights these days, dear Bloglanders!
