Life Imitating Art

 Hello! Today I am playing with  the Creative Confetti Challenge Life Imitating Art to be inspired by a work of fine art.  I chose an art print by Georgia O'Keefe called The White Calico Flower for my inspiration (shown below).  I created my design by using Power Poppy digital images Ultimate Poppy (no lines version) and Juicy Straw Berries (just the leaves ).  Using Photoshop Elements I manipulated the images and printed portions of the images  against a background of green leaves on white card stock and trimmed to fit on a mat of black card stock and then attached to a white card base. I added more gray color to the flower with Copic Markers.   The end result closely copied the art work in layout and colors. I finished by attaching a plastic Happy Birthday sticker from my stash.  This does not show very well in the photo because of the glare.

I made a second card using the same design but printed it in a lighter not like it as well as the first try. I again used Gray Copic Markers to add more color. I inked the edges of the image with Black Copic after trimming and simply attached to the white card base. I used a rub on sticker Thank You to finish. So I have 2 cards to add to my stash.  And used up some of my Sticker Stash.

What a neat idea for using the digi images. The cards do look like little pieces of art and they definitely resemble your inspiration work.

This is so gorgeous and I do believe I like your version better then the original. I think yours is so elegant looking.

Both versions are stunning! Georgia O'Keefe would be proud!
