Happy Friday! Today I am playing along with Papertrey's April Blog Hop Challenge! This month is all about Embroidered Inspiration.
I spent a few minutes the other day just looking at the pictures Nicole chose for inspiration. I like the black circle background of the first picture with the pop of flowers. Next, I like the bold leafy and floral patterns of the third one across on top row. Then, I loved the soft leafy feel for a background texture in the top middle. Finally, I just love the white dots on the bottom left corner. I decided to blend a little bit from each of the inspiration pieces that I liked. I came up with this design. I tried to stay fairly CAS with the card design.
I am using PTI Embellished Elegance stamp set and dies along with Bigger Blooms stamps and dies. I also used the Vineyard Impressions Plate for my harvest gold background. I combined some white, harvest gold, true black, and new leaf card stocks. I used pure poppy, harvest gold, and new leaf inks for the flowers and leaves. Snow pigment ink was used for sentiment along with some white ep.
As for the dots, I am using some white acrylic paint and a stylus. Makes for some quick dots! Dries pretty fast, too!
As always thanks so much for stopping by!
