I'm actually here to share this week's Sentimental Sundays challenge with you all, not to have a whinge I assure you ;) The theme for this week is 'childhood', and I have put a different spin on it because I need a baby card for a co-worker whose wife just had a little girl.
I have combined challenges again because I couldn't resist the beautiful card by Heather Pulvirenti, this month's muse for CASE Study challenges blog. Here is her inspirational card for challenge #14:
As you can see I mostly took inspiration from the colour combination (not the same pinks and blues though!) and the polka-dotted background (LOVE my Hero Arts dotted background stamp - I should really pull it out more often!)
To get the soft colours on the hearts and flowers I touched the tip of my colorless blender to the tip of the marker I wanted to take colour from and then applied it to the image. I just retouched the tip whenever the colour ran out.
So that's it from me, but you can see what the rest of the Sentimental Sundays team have created this week at the Sentimental Sundays challenge blog. You have until next Sunday to submit your entry if you decide to play along, and the random winner will receive four individual sets of digital sentiments from Raindrop Echo Designs Whimsy Stamps Digital Collection, and a custom watermark from the Custom Designs at Whimsy Stamps!
