Be Inspired Challenge #6
This is my second take on Beate's Be Inspired Challenge this week. I just couldn't get the first card to work. I kept playing with it and adding this and that, but nothing seemed to make me like it, so I just made a new card. :) Right away, the skirt made me think of a brayered background. The problem I was having with the first card was the flowers from the Embrace Life set. I couldn't color them in right to look good and not get lost in the background, so I had to go with these flowers that I could rock 'n roll to get the look I wanted. I inked the solid flower image in Taken With Teal and then rolled the edges in Night of Navy and stamped it. The line image of the flower is stamped in Night of Navy. The centers are turquoise glitter glue. I decided on this size card because the skirt looked long and skinny to me, so I made a long, skinny card. Be sure and check out how Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jenn Balcer, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts were inspired today! Thanks for stopping by!
