We all have the moments when we need a kick start to our creative mojo. It's not like we could ever say we ran out of ideas. That's seriously crazy talk with the way the internet is today. HOWEVER, there are still moments when I need that "starting" point. My card today is exactly that and Pinterest inspired.
Truth be told, I'm not a huge flowers fan. No idea why, just not my gig. There are some images that really do tickle my fancy and Stippled Blossoms is one.
I wanted to recreate a card I had seen from Dawn McVey. A simple card but her flowers were beautifully done. Stippled blossoms was a perfect match. She used the same color choices although her White background on the flowers was a little more vibrant.
At first I wasn't feeling the "black" flowers and felt like I was making a sympathy card. Then the more I looked at it the more elegant it became to me. The end result I loved.
At the top you can see a swirly image. That is from the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Vintage Verses. What a great stamp set that is and I just can't part with it. I I used a Basic Black marker and stamped the image in the corner. I then laid a piece of Burlap over the center.
You will notice that the burlap is hanging over the side of the card. I made my card base a little smaller so I could hang the burlap over and it still fits in my envelope.
Lastly, I used a new stamp set called Sketched Birthday which is a new stamp set. Just stamped on Whisper White and hand cut to fit perfectly over my burlap.
The last touch was alittle "shimmer" spray across the entire card and dazzled up the center of the flowers with Dazzling Diamonds.
It's different, but pretty simple and I'm in love with burlap.
