Inspiration comes anywhere

So the other day I’m at my hairdressers and there on the wall.

I knew I had to make this picture into a card and I knew exactly what stamp sets I was going to use!  Best of Flowers stamp set.

These cards might look the same, but actually they’re a little different.  For both cards I used the En Francais as a background stamp, but with the first card I used my Versa Mark and clear embossing powder.  The second card I used the White Craft ink and then used clear embossing powder, but I embossed before the White Craft ink dried.  I actually think this made a neat effect to the background.

The main piece is Crumb Cake cardstock and I stamped the bouquet in Staz-on in the center.  Using my Aqua painter I used a combination of Primrose Petal and Raspberry Ripple to color the roses and Wild Wasabi for the leaves.  I used a stamp from the retired Charming stamp set that has words like Create, Inspire, Share that I thought would be great for this card.  The ribbon is the retired Raspberry Ripple stitched ribbon that I love.

I couldn’t believe how close to the picture I got.  I used this card for an anniversary and inspirational card.  I hope it inspires you to try to use your White Craft ink in different ways!

Have a Magical Day!
