In the past I've blogged about a few challenges and "scraplifts" which have been pretty much copies of the original idea, so you'd be forgiven for thinking that I always worked that way. The truth is, that a lot of the time, y inspiration comes from right in front of me - the colours in a photo I'm using, a stamp I feel like playing with, the left-overs from a project I've just finished working on . . . you get the idea.
Sometimes, though, I come across something that absolutely takes my breath away.
That happened when I was wandering around in blog-land, and came across this gorgeous card at a blog called Our Change of Art:
I loved the use of the negative of the butterflies and could instantly see so many possibilities! As soon as I had the chance, I jumped on the Silhouette and created two templates, one an obvious copy, and also a more versatile set of round windows:
First of all, the card I made with the negative windows:
Now here's the card I made using the positive images. It is my entry for this month's purple, green and white challenge at Scrapbook Boutique:
Now for the circle cards: This card, for my Dad, has images stamped on each of the circles, then attached with mounting tape:
For a birthday party Angus was going to, I used the negative windows:
So many possibilities! I'll be doing some more playing with negative images for sure!
