This is my second post for today - you can see my regular Paper Players post here. This card is for this week's challenge over at The Global Design Project where this week they are casing one of their design team, Louise Sharp and this is her inspiration card:
I haven't made a tag card in a while and this one of Louise's is so pretty! Here's my take on it:
Here's the lowdown on today's card:
If The Cape Fits - I chose to feature the fun cape image from Everyday Hero on my tag as opposed to Louise's wheelbarrow and go with a fun card in bright primary colours that would make a great masculine card, for a would-be superhero. My image was also coloured, albeit in just one colour, Pacific Point - I also added a gold foil star and brushed my whole cape with my clear Wink of Stella brush for some caped-crusader sparkle. I also included the first part of my sentiment across my tag - the remainder I stamped on the inside:
Party Pattern - For my background I also chose to use a piece of designer series paper, taken from the Party Animal pack. The bold Pacific Point paper with subtle pattern was just what I needed for today's card.
Superstar Border - Instead of using a co-ordinating piece of DSP for my horizontal border, I decided to go with a punched border of confetti stars in red and gold, to add to my hero design. The fun thing about casing someone else's card is that you can take lots of basic elements that are the same - the layout, tag, coloured image - yet make them your own to produce something completely different.
My card is much less subtle than the challenge card, but similar in many other ways and it's clear to see where I did a 'Copy And Selectively Edit' of Louise's original. Thanks Louise for the inspiration this week!
