6/24 It's All About Being Inspired
Look at this Pier One advertisement that Great Swaps Girls Blog posted as our Inspiration Piece! Isn't it awesome!! Of course, I am sure I wasn't the only one to immediately think of the cute little set in our Mini Catty called Tart & Tangy. It would be perfect . . . except there is one problem as far as I am concerned . . . I don't OWN Tart & Tangy!!! Whaaa!!! I KNOW you are surprised as it seems like I own A LOT of sets and those of you who have been to my office KNOW that I do!! But, alas, Tart & Tangy is not one of them. So . . . I must try to find inspiration on a deeper level. (Well, not so deep really, but it sounded good.)
Looking just a bit deeper, I found myself being drawn to the flower plates. I also noticed the red bird and thought . . . hmmm . . . I think I have and idea! So, off to stamp I went. I came up with the card above and I LOVE it. I started with a base of Yo Yo Yellow, taking my inspiration directly from the wall. Then, I stamped the flowers over a 1/2 sheet of Whisper White randomly. (Using a 1/2 sheet, gave me enough flowers to create three cards in total.) I colored the flowers with my aqua painter using Summer Sun, Only Orange and Real Red re-inker. Then, using my Coluzzle, I just cut my "plate" out, edged it with my marker and ta-da! To give it a little more interest, I colored the flower centers black with my SU black journaler, and put little dots of three all over the surface of the plate. I flipped the marker over and using the bold point, dotted some more around the outside of the plate. I even found a spot for the little red birdie!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a happy day!
