OCC Inspiration Challenge, IC192 Happy Birthday!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!!

It's OCC time!!! Loretta has challenged us to use the posters from this wonderful artist Lowell Herrero as an inspiration!!!! You can find all his posters right HERE!!! Please stop by the OCC blog for all the details and all the Samples!!!

I actually chose this poster as my inspiration....I liked the colors and the basket in it!!! Which reminded me of the super cute PTI Set - Vintage Picnic. The Sketch is from this weeks SC240.

Here is a close up on the basket.....

Don't forget to stop by - Jennifer, Frances, Loretta, Jenny and Joycelyn's blog to see what poster they have chosen!!!

~Supply List~

Stamp Set: Vintage Picnic (PTI)
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers - E47, G94, R08, N1, YG91, YR04 and Colorless Blender
Cardstock: White, Scarlet Jewel (PTI)
Design Paper: Summer Picnic (SU)
Accessories: Silver Pearls, Brown Satin Ribbon, Marvy Circle Punch, Rectangle Spellbinder Die
Technique: Coloring with Markers


My first attempt for the OCC card was actually this image right down below.....I couldn't decide which basket I should use and ended up trying a few different ones...somehow I always like to use this particular one...I guess because I only have to use one color on the basket - LOL!!!

Nevertheless - I turned it into a quick card that I could use for the *Thanksgiving* time. As you can tell I kept it very simple!!!

Here is my card for todays IC192 - Bellacor Vase.

This one was tough ......not only did it take me forever to chose a vase, but they didn't speak to me at all....I really had to warm up to them - LOL!!! It was a good challenge afterall....I did find a vase that I can see it right HERE.

I guess the multi-colors on the vase made it easy for me to choose the Happy Birthday Set from Our Daily Bread Designs!!! This time I based my colors on the *orange* in the vase!!! Just in case you missed my post this past is the link...I was telling you how fun it is to color this image :)

The layout of my card is based on this beautiful SFYTT Sketch. The DP is once again from the Razzleberry Lemonade - I think this is my favorite Designer Paper so far :)!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!! Enjoy your weekend!!!
