It's time for a fantastic photo inspiration at Inkspirational. Goosh I want to be that woman in the photo! She is gorgeous... And so is her dress! Blue is SO my favorite color at the moment. The Ink DT has made various interpretations on the inspiration pic, please check them out in the challenge blog! Our guest designer this time is Pauline (Cotnob). She has used the perfect stamp for this challenge! Welcome to Inkspirational, Pauline.
When I started to think about my DT card the feathers of the peacock brought this background stamp from Impression Obsession to my mind. I heat embossed it with gold powder and used mists to give it colour -my normal method would have been to sponge the background but I decided I should be brave and give those watery (scary, scary water!!!) mists a chance. In the beginning I didn't like the look but it has grown on me and now I think I'll mist some other backgrounds in the future too! I heat embossed part of an old favorite stamp (see cards I've made with it here) from Crafty Individuals with gold powder and added some lace, ribbon and gems for embellies -this has some vintage-feel I think. When I started making cards vintage was my favorite style and some of my latest cards seem to be leaning to that direction again. There's something in this card that "doesn't do it" for me and I was staring at this for several days... But in the end there was not much else to do but decide it was ready. :)
I wish you all a fun weekend! Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you playing along at Inkspirational!
