While poking around on Pinterest, I came across this card by Cristina and knew I could make a couple of thank-you cards for Karen's Card Shop using her fabulous layout. I decided to challenge myself to create two very different looks out of it.
I think I succeeded.
The first version uses warm, cheerful colors and Papertrey's Embellished Elegance, which is a bit whimsical but organic. I also blinged it up. So much fun!
The second version changes the colors to blue and green (my favorite color combination!) and uses Papertrey's Grunge Me. It's so modern and geometric!
Taking an idea/layout/theme and seeing how I can vary it gives me a creative thrill. These two cards came at the end of a long, hard slog of finding my mojo again. I need to remember how much fun this variation-on-some-fabby-inspiration is the next time I find myself in a creative dry spell.
What do you do when you're in a slump? Other than clean your craft space. I did that. For once, it didn't work.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
