Welcome to Viva La Verve's January Week 3 sketch and inspiration picture hosted by Diva Christyne.
I must say, I'm definitely hitting the theme of the decade I was born in with this inspiration picture and card LOL! Those are some funky colours, shag pillows, bold patterns and textures, not to mention the eclectic chandelier! All that's missing are the beaded curtains.
That being said, I had to hunt far and wide for some purple paper as I don't have a lot of in my stash, not to mention the mix of patterns and colours I had to put together. My eyes are still going buggy! But then, it's all about challenging ourselves and getting out of our comfort zones, right?
I focused on the black borders/outlining and the colours. My grey paper pattern was close to the couch pillow pattern, and the chevrons pick up the pointy edges of the star shaped table. Bright yellow bubble sofa became embossed dots and the sentiment fit the era perfectly - score! Two flowers as per the container of petals on the and I was good to go.
Think I'll have to save this card for some sixties themed party a member of our family gets invited to as it is quite the eye full LOL!
Thanks for popping by and if you want to see which cards I chose to highlight for this week's VLV sketch and Inspiration picture, head on over to the Viva La Verve blog and check it out.
