I'm playing along with Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge again this week. Lexi Daly is showing off her fabulous style and she's having us make cards with focal clusters. I know I don't have to say this, because it's obvious, but her cards were awesome. Here's just one of them ...
I love these challenges because they usually teach a great design principle and they force me to really think about my layout. I like that. It's good to learn something new. Here's what I came up with ...
It's a little bit unusual for a Christmas card, but I really like how it turned out. I ended up using a die cut Songbird even though I managed to stamp a perfectly good bird directly on my card base (with MISTI, of course). I just didn't like the colour combo that I used. By the by, this is the first time I've stamped a larger solid image with my PTI Tropical Teal ink pad and I can't believe how well it stamps! Perfect coverage.
