Hi, everyone! This week's Inspiration Challenge is to find inspiration from the Paper and Stitch Blog......I fell in love with the assorted colors in this amazing bouquet with her lavender dress and used the colors to make a background using the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique. I used coral, aqua, purple, and pink ink......the ink pads were dotted randomly onto a craft sheet, spritzed with water, then mopped up with a panel of watercolor paper. Once the panel was dry, it was cut with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies and the ODBD Custom Big Balloon Die was cut out of the rectangle. The sentiment from 'Celebrating You' was stamped in a repeating pattern onto a white panel, matted in coral. The layered '2' was cut out with the ODBD Custom Large Numbers Dies and the tiny hearts were cut out with the ODBD Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies. Coral baker's twine was added to the balloon.
I didn't have any large gift bags other than plain, so I used the ODBD Custom Large Alphabet Dies to add our niece's name and made a heart stencil using the ODBD Custom Layering Hearts Dies. Since we live 40 minutes from anywhere, sometimes you have to improvise when you can't get to a store!
Thanks for stopping by!
