Hi there, everyone! Today we have a new As You See It challenge, and it's a wonderful color challenge! Check out this lovely inspiration:
I knew just what I was going to use for this challenge as soon as I saw it! I pulled out the Jar of Flowers stamp set and inked up the sunflowers in brown Stazon ink (which is FINALLY available!) and went to work:
After watercoloring it with ink and an aquapainter, I fussy-cut it out and mounted it on a white panel that had been embossed with the Tin Tile EF and layered on a piece of Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and a Crushed Curry mat:
The Gilded Autumn paper has some lovely shimmery accents so I added some new Metallic Ribbon to coordinate. And I added a sentiment from Here's a Card, stamped in Cajun Craze and accented with a little flourish from Banner Year, diecut with a die from Tasteful Labels:
The base of the card is Bermuda Bay, and before running in through the Pinewood Planks embossing folder, I inked the inside surface of the folder with Smoky Slate ink. I love the vintage look it created! And the sketch I used is from Try Stampin on Tuesday:
I think this photo inspiration is a great segue to making some lovely fall creations...it certainly inspired me, I hope it does you too! Can't wait to see what you create...share them with us at As You See It! Thanks for popping in!
I have a few more birthday cards that came in the mail:
From Shawn, along with the back of her envelope (she knows my rebellious nature!!!):
and here's how it folds...I love this so much, I've already made a couple myself!
and all the way from Germany, from my friend Claudia:
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
