Hi friends. My sister was having our dad's cousin over today and asked me if I wanted to come for lunch, so I said 'sure'. I'm a person who likes to keep my hands busy, so I grabbed a pack of white cardstock, a few stamp sets, a couple of inks, watercolor pencils and my basic tool kit. My intention was to just stamp and color images. I also grabbed a crochet project in case I needed a diversion.
I did color a few images, but that isn't much fun if you don't have a specific project to put them on. So I checked out the inspiration challenge on SCS. Most of the samples given and even pictures on the selected site just didn't do anything for me. So I went back to the samples. I chose the fifth sample and took my inspiration from the trellis in the background.
Since I only had white cardstock, I swiped my vintage photo distress ink pad down the paper to color it brown. Then I cut thin strips from the colored cardstock to build a trellis.
I stamped leaves and flowers from peaceful petals (SU). The flowers were colored with inktense pencils and water brush, and the leaves were colored using a blender pen dipped into my vintage photo ink pad. Then I fussy cut them out... yeah, I cut around all those tiny stems. I don't do that often, but I really wanted the trellis to show behind the flowers.
The sentiment is from the same set.
I then punched some 1/8" circles from the same brown cardstock to make some faux brads.
I sponged vintage photo ink along the edges of the card and the trellis panel.
Thanks for stopping by today.
