Saturday, so it's time for a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week we have some photo inspiration for you.
I used the colours and the flowers as my inspiration. I die cut the Xcut Just For You panel die and mat and layered it up on a 6x6 card blank. I then stamped and heat embossed flowers from Happy Little Stampers Doodle Flowers, and Craftwork Cards Stamp It III and fussy cut them out. I used white embossing powder rather than black ink to keep the soft feel of the photo inspiration. I added a touch of darker colour to the centre of the flowers with my Zig Clean Colour pens and some nuvo glitter drops to the centre of the flowers to finish.
We're looking forward to see what you create this week using the photo inspiration. Just don't do what I did originally... I made my DT card and I'd planned to stamp the sentiment on it as we're a stamping challenge and so need to see stamping on your cards. I couldn't find the stamp I intended to use and scrabbled about in my stash to find an alternative. It was only after I finished the card that I realised I'd used a a die and so there was no stamping on my card. Cue a last minute rush to create a suitable DT card. To add insult to injury, I left the original card on my craft table and didn't notice that my damp Lawn Fawn Stamp Shammy cloth was touching it until it was too late and the card had absorbed the moisture and bleached the colour and buckled the card. Whoops!
