Sukhāsana



A friend at work is having a birthday and when I saw the lovely Yoga Pose Juno from Paola’s Papers I instantly thought of her so it seemed fitting to make a card for her featuring this image.


I wanted it to look like Juno was almost floating in the air so I’ve placed her on some clear plastic and framed that with a Nestie.  To make up my card I’ve followed the current sketch over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 twice as I’ve made an easel card.  On the top part of my card I omitted the rectangular element, basically to give me the clear background and the floating effect.  On the bottom part of the card I flipped the sketch so the rectangular and oval elements were in a landscape rather than portrait orientation.  On both the top and bottom I added a second embellie to give some balance and mostly to fill the extra space I had on the top from moving the oval element high enough to create the floating effect.

I was umming and ahhing about the colours to do this, I hadn’t coloured up Juno’s outfit before I started the card base (something quite unusual for me) but luckily Deep Ocean is having a colour challenge and it is brown and blue (hopefully obvious from my card).  These seemed the perfect colours for the serene feel I was going for so I raided my paper stash and found some lovely subtly patterned blues and browns.

I did want to make this just that little bit more special so I figured some bling to help fill the space on the top half was called for.  Fortunately I had some Chocolate Jewels in my stash that fit perfectly.  With my bit of bling I am also entering this in the current challenge at Crafting Musketeers.
