Ideas, stars and dreams

I was supposed to be my second spot in September as a guest designer with The Crazy Challenge.  Unfortunately the card I sent hasn't appeared on their blog and there are no other Guest DT cards so I'm not quite sure what happened there but I'm going to post it anyway!

The card was created from a photo for inspiration.

I got my thinking cap on.  Light bulbs to me mean ideas.  The brightly coloured stars made me think of a rainbow of colours.  Which got me thinking of dreams and clouds etc. etc.  Whilst I had all this in mind I went browsing for some inspiration.

I was so luck to find just the image I wanted.  It's number 183 from Oddball Art.  The main colours that stood out for me in the light bulb photo were the yellow and pink and I chose the green to go with it as well so the card wasn't inundated with colour.

This was done with ProMarkers.  I've then cut the image out with a Spellbinders die and used the same three colours around the edge of the image.
There are a couple of pink hearts added to the image as well which a got from Paperchase.

The design papers are a mixture from Santoro Gorjuss, Lili of the Valley and come pale gold card from Hobbycraft.

The sentiment is from a Lili of the Valley art pad.  I've used the three ProMarkers to colour an abstract pattern onto the sentiment.

Finally I added to pearlised self adhesive gems.
