I love getting inspiration from others then seeing where it will take me. I started with this card by Steffi - love that triple layered flower. First I pretty much replicated it, but with the supplies in my stash.
I was trying a different embossing paste, and it turned out more cream than white. Then I decided to add some bits and pieces that were already on my desk... cream leaves, the frames left over from this card. I mounted it with beige foam to give extra interest.
Lucky these cream gems from Pretty Pink Posh had just arrived. A perfect fit.
I love being inspired by cards on the interwebs, and then either CASe it, or switch it up a little. Then as I create, one card inspires another.
Besides the challenges below, I was inspired by THIS card by Agnieszka Malyszek. I didn't have the same products, so I used what I had on hand. I used the Sketched Stripes Background stamp from Concord & 9th instead of the striped stencil. I embossed it in white and used distress inks to give it a watercolour effect.(I can't show you the first card I made as it needs to reach the recipient first - but I'll post it once it arrives.)
Then I made a second card as I had bits and pieces left over from different projects.
