Just Add Ink 233

Very recently, I started following the blog of Narelle Farrugia after seeing some of her work on-line and really liking her style. Through that, I discovered the wonderful Just Add Ink blog, just in time for a new sketch to appear. So, I thought I'd give it a go since the sketch really appealed to me.

And here is my version.

I especially like the strong colours (white, Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss) and the symmetry of the design, which is restful and harmonious. I also like the way the circles that dominate the centre of the banner morph into straighter lines as you move out from the centre of the card, via the banner edges, the lattice embossing and the hexagons of the DSP.

The coloured circles are popped up from the body of the white banner by dimensionals and then each central circles is popped up again, giving a pleasing impression of depth.

Update: I was delighted when this card received an Honourable Mention at Just Add Ink.
