This is for the VSN mini challenge. My challenge is that I had no computer for seeing the information--I made the card "blind" based on an over-the-phone description. But the results may be more creative that way :). As I was trying to make the picture based on the chocolate box (without actually seeing it), it really was a leap of faith on this one. But now that I see the inspiration in person, I think I did OK.
I used my girlfriends description of the mosaic surrounding an "old fashioned queen" as the basis of my card. I have a punch which punched out lots of little squares, and realized that could be start of the mosaic, thought about a picture of a girl that I have on a stamp set (it's old-fashioned, but not of a queen) and then went from there. Since the title of the stamp set is summer by the sea, I went with "sea" colours for the mosaic.
I used the polished stone technique with the sea colours, and then punched out the kraft paper to become the "grout". Then I cut out the ovals and watercoloured the girl to coordinate. I love how this turned out....thank you so much for the inspiration!!
