Our Creative Corner - Inspiration Challenge

Saturday, October 30, 2010


Hello!  I hope you are all enjoying your Saturday so far. This week is an inspiration challenge at Our Creative Corner.  Diane has picked a lovely and serene image for us.  I took inspiration from the soft, muted colors as well as the vase of flowers.  


I broke out my Pocket Silhouettes set from Stampin' Up.  I haven't used it in forever because, quite frankly, I thought it was retired.  I have to say those images go perfectly with the inspiration photo.  

It's very subtle, but I stamped text using cream ink onto the kraft card base. I think it really softens the card.  

 If you feel like getting crafty you should definitely give this challenge a try.  Make sure you stop by Our Creative Corner and check out the rest of the card samples.  

I hope you all have a great weekend and have a safe Halloween.  Don't eat too much candy!

Such a pretty card, Dana! When I first looked at it, I thought the background was a line texture, now I see it's text. Nice! Love the pocket silhouettes look.

This is just so soft and elegant looking, Dana. Love how you really featured the kraft CS and that image is just perfect for this piece!

Have a great weekend.

Hugs,
Linda
