Tuesday Trigger: Mapping Color

Hello! Just wanted to pop in real quick to share a card I made using the most recent Tuesday Trigger photo over at Moxie Fab World! Click HERE to see how you can play along and to see all of the amazing submissions created by our fellow bloggers!

Here's the trigger photo:


And here's my take on it:


When I saw the photo of the pillow, I immediately thought of the trunk of this funky little tree from "Wonderfully Whimsical" (Papertrey Ink). So that became my starting point. Then, I thought it would be fun to frame out my trio of funky trees using a similar pattern to the one on the pillow. I didn't have any patterned paper that fit the bill, so I sketched out a frame free hand and then used a ruler to create some stripey patterns. Then I colored them with Copic Sketch Markers using colors similar to those in the trigger photo.


Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I LOVE reading your comments and truly appreciate your feedback! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Father's Day to all of the DADS out there!

I'm going to ditto all the above comments in saying that the freehand background is amazing. You should start designing some digital paper! Love your card and the take on the trigger.
