Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Great Big Canvas. I chose this awesome photo for inspiration. Last month I made this apron card out of some goodies from Divinity Designs, so I needed to make two more for Mother's Day. I had already stamped the peonies from 'Daughter's Best Friend' and cut two more panels out with the Apron and Tools Dies set, but couldn't decide on the colors. Today's Inspiration Challenge helped me to figure that out....just in time since Mother's Day is tomorrow! After the background was watercolored and the flowers were colored with both markers and watercoloring, the panel was embossed with the Cross Stitch Embossing Folder. I found some cute little flower eyelets in my stash plus matching grosgrain ribbon. The ribbons were adhered to the inside of the card base, then an extra apron panel was cut and adhered over the ribbon ends to seal them in.
My second card was inspired by the colors in this photo.....two shades of purple plus yellow centers....yummy!!! The card was created the same as the first, except I used the cooking tools instead of the gardening tools.
Thanks for visiting with me today!
