Inspired Sketch

Posted in Challenges, Just Because at 4:13 pm by happygiggles

This card is a combination of the inspiration challenge at Splitcoast and Beate’s Weekend Sketch!  This week for the inspiration challenge we were to find inspiration from anything in our own home.  I chose this picture:

I just love the yellows and the reds.  My two favorite colours in my home!  For the card, I knew I had to make a piece of red paper the focal point since that’s what my eyes are drawn to first in the picture.  I tried to incorporate the sky and the yellow sand in the pieces behind the red paper.  I used the background stamp from Oh, So Lovely and some clear embossing powder to try and give the effect of rain. (water anyways!)  I decided to use the flower from Delight in life with some black embossing powder on the red focal point.  All the layers underneath are meant to be the frame.


Stamps: Delight in Life, Oh, So Lovely
Paper: Basic Black, real red, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Barely Banana
Ink: Versamark
Accessories: dew drops, black eyelets, clear and black embossing powder, corner rounder
