Coaster Inspiration

07-05-08 Challenge

One more quick post today before we go to a picnic. I haven't been too inspired by the last few Inspiration Challenges, but I thought today's would be fun. Here is the enamel I chose as my inspiration. It turned out okay, but I would have liked to have made it bigger, and added a sentiment, but I'll put it on the inside. It was made by brayering a piece of glossy white cardstock, stamping the image over top in Versamark, embossing in clear EP, and then brayering again in Brilliant Blue. I added some shading with Night of Navy, mounted it on some Ballet Blue that had been embossed with my Nestabilities, and also shaded it. The whole thing is mounted on a scallop card in Bashful Blue. I added a small silver cord ribbon because there just isn't much room for anything else! Thanks for visiting!

  • Stamps: Impression Obsession Autumn Seals
  • Paper: Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Glossy
  • Ink: Versamark, Night of Navy, Brocade Blue, Brilliant Blue
  • Acc: Clear EP, Heat Tool, Nesties, Brayer, Silver cord
