Make | Card – “Hello”

Card | Hello | Blackbird Darlin

This card was inspired a bit by city life, in that poster-glued-to-a-graffitied-wall kind of way. My favorite postered wall in town got destroyed a few months ago, and it made me kinda sad. This is a slightly prettier version of course, thanks to that CRAZY BRIGHT colored paper. And love-birds.

The 3×4 card mounted in the middle is actually composed of three elements – the 3×4 card from this paper, the “Hello” image cut out from a sheet out of the Dear Lizzy Daydreamer 6×6 pad, and a strip of washi tape. I inked around the sentiment to dirty it up a bit. Oh! And pop dots! I’m all over that in my cards lately.

Are any of you ever inspired by your surroundings? I’m always snapping phone pics of the random things I see when I’m out walking!

    Very pretty card, the background is great and sorry to hear about your graffitti wall being destroyed it must have a been a great source of inspiration to make such a lovely card from it.
