Grateful...



Doesn't looking at this just put you in the holiday spirit?  I love mood boards because they are so full of color and texture and wonderful shapes.  They also can stir emotions and feelings that really get those creative juices going.  

It's Brenda here today and this is my card and a bit about the creative process that brought it about -


Often times my cards are technique driven.  When I saw the wonderful fall colors on the paint chips it made me think of a brayer technique I saw awhile back that I have wanted to try.  I already knew one of the beautiful script words from You Inspire Me would be my center piece.

I gathered ink pads from various companies to match the colors in the paint chip.  I used my Spellbinders Tool-in-One with the brayer tip and started laying down the colors.  In keeping with the season of thankfulness,  I heat embossed Grateful with gold embossing powder.  When I saw the door wreath, the colors brought to mind the sequins from our gorgeous Mocha Vanilla Latte mix, so I added a few of those.  I loved the round shapes in the inspiration pic and felt the little triple dot detail from the set would be perfect gold heat embossed also.  Here's a look at You Inspire Me and all the wonderful sentiments and details it includes -


We would love to see your take on our mood board.  Please feel free to share with us on our Facebook page or on Instagram.  Until next time, "spread kindness like glitter"!

Aloha,
Brenda

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
