Wishing You Happiness

Hello, Friday! How about starting this day with a bright, happy color card?

I love bright colors. That's for sure. When, I saw this gorgeous from Lotus Flower set from Crafter's Companion Kimono collection, I was debating with myself on what color to use. Then, as usual, I just picked one color and go from there. I started with the lime green color on the skirt and built the whole color scheme from there.

The Kimono collection really have some gorgeous oriental image. I am surprisingly enjoying working with the images from this collection. I say, surprisingly, because as you know, I am normally into cutesy stuff. When I first saw this collection, I was a bit intimidated. But, boy, sometime when you just dive head first and go for it, it could open your eyes to new level of appreciation and take your creativity to a new place.

In this case, appreciation for non critter, non flower image. Do you have certain stamp that you find intimidating to work with? I'd say, give it a try. Start with something that you love and apply it to the image. Here, I start with my love of bright colors & CAS style. The end result, could surprise you, the way this image did to me. :) Have a blessed Friday.

Vera, I LOVE this image. She is darling. I love the style and simplicity of the image, not that it's simple, but oh, I really like the way you colored it too.
