I mentioned in my last post that I was working on putting together a few more Valentines cards using some non-traditional color combos. I had so much fun making these cards. The interesting thing is that the idea for both of these cards danced around in my head for a few days before I actually made them. I just love that part of the creative process. Even when I laid down to sleep at night I would envision how the cards might turn out, the colors I would use and the elements I would include. When an idea comes to me in this way, mulling it over and working it out for a few days, I always enjoy the process of actually creating the card so much more than when I just sit down at my workspace and try to throw something together on a whim. Of course, when I set about creating these particular cards they still took on a life of their own and became something just a little bit different than I had envisioned. But that's OK too, because when it comes to card making, at least for me, it's all about the process of discovery.
I hope you enjoy,
