When I pulled out my birthday stamp box, I found A Muse's Birthday Wishes set. In it is a quotation from Lucille Ball about birthdays, so I wondered what I could do with that on the front of a card.
The challenge here is to unify this text-heavy quotation with some sort of appropriate image. The first card uses line and logic to connect the image/border with the words.
The spectrum ink pad adds wonderful interest and nice, rich color. The numbers lead up to the sentiment, and the overlap providesunity. The rounded corners on the bottom tie in with the number dots.
The overall effect was fine, but the second attempt works a bit better in my opinion. Because BLING!
On this card, it's the bling placement that unites...and bling is always good, right? For this card, I randomly chose number stamps in different fonts and sizes, and used shades of pink and purple to make a rather girly card for a quote from the quintessential funny lady!
The idea, though, is to connect the sentiment/quote with the images in some way. What tips do you have for achieving this kind of unity?
