Its Garden Party time again - where a clipping snatched out of the "Inspiration Shoebox" is used for the basis of a card. Here is the inspiration photo from last week.
I'm thrilled to say that I had TWO players this week - you guys must like fall!
First is Tiffany from IHeartArt with her wonderful floral card. I love the colors and all the layers of flowers. You can see her card HERE.
Next is Debbie from 1of2Shoes with her awesome nature card - it goes so well with the inspiration pieces and the coloring is amazing. You can see her card HERE.
Here is my attempt. I used the tree as inspiration for my branch. The stamp set is Branches of a Tree from Impression Obsession. I used Memento inks (I love them!) for this card. The stem is stamped in Rich Cocoa. I inked the leave clusters first with Tangelo, and then rolled the edges in Lady Bug before I stamped.
To be truer to the picture, my swirl background probably should have been green, but I love the creamsicle color. I cuttlebugged it and then dusted over the embossing with Tangelo ink on a duster brush - just to highlight it a bit more.
So here is the inspiration photo for next week (sorry about the glare - ran out of daylight).
Hmmm.... not quite sure how this got in there. Maybe the black and green color scheme? Or the funky frame over the mantel? I have no idea what I'm going to do with this one.
Should I draw a new one? Or is that cheating?
