I did it, I did it…I got all the February challenges completed for the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog!
This weeks challenge is C.A.S.E. which means Copy and Steal Everything! There are so many talented artists out there to be inspired by, but Heart 2 Heart wanted us to “copy and put our spin on a project from the current Seasonal Expressions Idea Book”.
I don’t think there is a greater form of flattery than when someone wants to copy your work…unfortunately I fell victim to someone that was unscrupulous a few months ago that actually stole a piece of my artwork and put their own stamp on it. It’s important to also give credit where credit is due when inspired by a card.
My inspiration came from page 84 of the Seasonal Expressions 1 A Birthday in Watercolor. The talented artists at Close to My Heart are always an inspiration!
My spin was to use a B&T paper from the Seasonal Mix-Ins paper packet and choose a color combination from the Love of Color – Glacier, Sweet Leaf & Thistle. I also didn’t have the puffy sticker embellishments (what’s wrong with me) used on the original card so I used I Heart Us sequins mixed in with the spatters.
I hope you will look at the Close to My Heart Catalogs more than just a place to shop, but also as a source of inspiration. Find a card that you love and share it with the Heart to Heart Challenge Blog.
Thanks for stopping by…see you soon!
