Color Inspiration at House of Cards
can you believe it, it's already September, autumn is officially here! House of Cards Challenge starts the fall with this beautiful color palette and as always, the first week of the month is reserved for cute and fun cards! My card is maybe a bit on the edge of shabby and not so fun in a humorous sense but my geisha is definitely super cute! If you are new to House of Cards, this is how the challenge works: We have the same inspiration photo for whole month -so this time it's that beautiful vintage hues pic you see above- and we make cards with different styles every week. Fun and Cute is the first, then comes Clean and Simple, next is Classic and Elegant and the fourth week is for Shabby and Vintage cards. I hope you'll join us in the fun! There's plenty of Fun and Cute inspiration cards in the challenge blog, use the link above to check them out.
In my card I've used a LOTV image and Lavanda digi paper from Nicecrane Designs. The paper I chose from the collection is perfect for our challenge colors I think! I colored my geisha with Copics, this was my first ever time coloring black hair and it was quite exciting... This is actually my second finished geisha -I decorated the first finished image with stamped swirls around it and that was a huuuge mistake -I didn't like it at all and ended up tearing up the poor geisha in fury! :) Well, I'm laughing about it now but it sure wasn't funny after hours of coloring practicing and a finished project in the bin. :) Have a fun day everyone!
