Jane's Doodles and Pink Petticoat

Jane's Doodles and Pink Petticoat by judkajudy
I finally inked up the Doodles Flowers set from Jane's Doodles and combined it with the birdie  digi image from Pink Petticoats. The tiny gingham checked paper just happened to be on my desk when I needed a card base! I like the combination.

I'm eagerly waiting for my copy of Paper Craft's Design Handbook to arrive. There were so many design tips from the book on the Moxie Fab World blog recently that I knew I needed the whole book!!

I've been trying to incorporate newly learned design principles into my card making. The colors on this card fall into the Gallon, Quart, Pint principle; three colors with each one being used in a lesser quantity than the one above it! In this card, blue is the Gallon color, brown the Quart color and green is the Pint color. I also thought about balance and movement while putting the card together.

I am so excited to know good design principles can be learned and need not be genetic!!

We are experiencing some cloudy weather with the prospect of rain, thanks to Hurricane Isaac. It is a reminder to keep the people suffering from this storm in our hearts and prayers.

So glad you stopped by!

Judy, this card is adorable! I love the dots and gingham combo and also ADORE this pairing of stamps! Way to go incorporating the design principles into your creations - although I've always thought your cards were awesome!

14 days to go until Scrapfest! :)

Love the gingham/dots combo--great colors, too! I don't think you need that publication. You picked up the concept just fine!
