What to do???

Have you ever had inspiration hit and then not have a clue what to do with your project once you were done? When the Copic Creations website had the Clear/Transparent challenge I had the idea to do the reflection technique. The problem is, once my image was finished, it was too big to fit on any card I tried to put it on. No matter what I tried it didn't look right. My finished image measures 7" x 3". So I am open for suggestions on what I should do with this image. It turned out so nice I don't want to waste it. If you have an idea please leave me a comment and let me know what it is. Have a super day!!!

Oh WOW she's beautiful! Wouldn't she be great done on a long notebook cover?! You did an awesome job on this.

Oh gosh, this is the perfect size to put on a card that fits in a standard business #10 envie! I love making the long cards, and this is just perfect! The card base should measure somewhere around maybe 3 3/4" x 9". Just enough to put some pretty matching paper around the outside. Good luck! Love it! You did an excellent job! hugs!

Barb Hardeman said...

Yeah! I'm with Sharon, she the perfect size for a business envy. You will have just enough room to add some pretty paper and your card base and it will be wonderful. You did an excellent job on this challenge...hugs...Barb

Michelle, she is beautiful...pretty enough to mat and frame in my opinion!!! She is just gorgeous...Hugs..Jacque

Nancy said...

Hi Michelle she is beautiful and I have to agree with Jacque I think I would mat and frame her and put her in my craft room so I could look at her often. The other ideas are good as well but I would have to keep her! You did a fabulous job!

I would definitely frame her. She is too, too gorgeous to give away. You could go to Michaels and buy a $1.00 scrap piece of Mat Board and with a sharp craft knife cut out a mat or maybe see how much they would charge. It is a keeper in my mind.

Such a great idea to do the reflection for the card. Very peaceful looking and would be a wonderful piece to frame!

LEMphotography said...

This turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I think it is something you should keep as well - frame it!

Hi Michelle, Here is another vote to frame this beauty and keep it in your craft room for inspiration. All the other ideas are also good, and you could produce this again for those ideas. I love the way you did this, and I know you do not consider it a finished project, but I would like it if you would share the name of the Magnolia stamps you used. TIA Linda S. in NE

I just finished a card that was done on card that measured 3 3/4" X 8 1/2" You can see it on my blog at
You can make the made by taking a 8 1/2 X 7 1/2 piece of cardstock and scoring so you would get the above size. I bought my blank cards already that size.
Your image is absolutely gorgeous. It would be a shame not to use it.

All amazing suggestions and exact ones I was thinking of when I saw your post! She is truly amazing - I am just in awe of the beauty and know she would be a welcome addition to any of the projects suggested by my fav would be on a composition/note book. I need to look into that technique, I really love the look!!!
