Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge: Frosting!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!

The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!

I focused on the colors and overall look of the inspiration photo.  I started with some PTI white linen paper.  I used ranger hickory smokey ink cube with the dtp(direct to paper) technique brushed it across the paper.  I added some pressure in areas to get a more saturated look. I really love the distress weather feel.  

I stamped and die cut PTI Beautiful Berries stamp set in pale peony and lovely lady.  I white embossed the sentiment from PTI Caligraphy Classics set.  I added some white paint splatters for added effect.  I finished my card with some clear sequins.

Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs 
for more inspiration!

  5. This is beautiful, Betty. I love the dark background and it really highlights the beautiful berries!

  6. I got the berries at release but still haven't used them - you've inspired me! Your berries are gorgeous on that rich linen background. (The linen paper has been on my wishlist forever and I never remember to get it in my cart!)
