Navy Grid
Topic: New Work

This is the beginning of another new series. I have been reading a lot of blogs where one person challenges another or a group of others to create cards or other art based upon an inspiration piece that is posted.

I decided to find pieces to inspire myself and, after gathering quite a few, set about making cards from the ideas they presented.

This is the first - a  set of bedding called Chantal Navy from Bed Bath & Beyond.

I was inspired by the gold grid on the rich blue and the vines on the pillow sham. This is the card I made:

I changed the grid to be square rather than diagonal on the card and made it first with scoring and then with a gold gel pen. Tiny bits of gold peel-offs mark the intersections of the grid lines. Then I used more peel-off waste to make the vines imitating the pillow sham.

The trim on the sheets and pillow cases was copied using a blue gel pen on each end of a cream-colored card base. Then the plue parts were mounted on top and a tag made to mount the gold peel-off greeting.
