Be Inspired #12
Time for another Be Inspired Challenge from Beate! This one ended up being very different for me. I usually try to find stamps that mimic the inspiration piece. For this one, I started thinking about a set that has a table and chairs. . .then I thought "let's try something different." So, I just went with the colors to start. I used Really Rust, More Mustard and Old Olive. For the stamp, I decided to use a set I just got. I stamped the image on vellum in Old Olive ink and then sponged the back of the vellum with More Mustard and Old Olive, and I colored parts of the flowers with a Really Rust marker. I ran the piece of vellum through my Xyron and then attached it to a piece of white cardstock. I stamped the butterfly from the set twice with Craft Whisper White ink. For the card base, I stamped the focal image in Really Rust on the Really Rust cardstock. The sentiment is mounted on a label made with the Double Ended Tags die from Spellbinders. I'm glad I decided to branch out a bit and not take the inspiration so literally! Make sure you check out what Beate, Danielle Lounds, Dawn McVey, Jennifer Buck, Silke Ledlow and Susan Roberts have been inspired to create. I'm sure they are all gorgeous! Thanks for stopping by!
