Inspire

Hidey ho everyone!  I'm here to share my latest project with you all!  I really, really wanted to use the You Inspire Me stamp set.  It's been sitting on my desk just waiting for the right moment.  I finally had a great idea for it.



I started with a kraft colored piece of cardstock.  Next I needed some colors to work with.  I pulled several ink pads from Stampin Up--Rich Razzleberry, Island Indigo, Mint Macaron and Soft Suede.  I stamped the word "inspire" randomly on the cardstock with black ink.  Next, I went in with some of the small sentiments that coordinate with inspire.  These were stamped in assorted colors.  Then to fill in the gap areas, I used several of the little stamps in the set to randomly stamp all over. 

Once that was done I cut it out with a scalloped die.  I sponged around all of the edges with the Rich Razzleberry ink.  I wanted something to go along one side but I felt cardstock would block too much of the background.  I pulled out a piece of heavy vellum.  The plain vellum was just too stark and showed up as white.  I searched through my Copics and pulled out RV69 which matched closely to the Rich Razzleberry ink.  I colored the backside of the vellum so that it would be muted on the front.

I dug around and pulled out a border punch from EK Success.  I cut both sides of the vellum and attached it to the kraft piece by wrapping it around to the back and gluing in place.  Now that I had a background I needed more!  I pulled out one of the little floral images from Grace's Little Notes.  I stamped it onto watercolor paper using the Rich Razzleberry ink.  I used a waterbrush to pull out the color into the flower petals.  I used Mint Macaron and a waterbrush for the stem and leaves.  I went around the entire image with the Soft Suede.  Once the flowers were dry, I went back in and added a little more Razzleberry ink for a bit of shading.  I attached the flowers using foam tape onto the kraft cardstock.

To complete the card I cut a piece of craft foam to put behind the entire piece of kraft cardstock.  I adhered this to a Mint Macaron card base.  For the finishing touches I colored over the flower with Wink of Stella and added a few sequins.  I didn't have any matching sequins on hand so I pulled the white ones out of the Honeybee mix and colored them with Copics.  Then I had a perfect match!!



I hope you enjoyed my project today!

I have had my Faber-Castell Polochromos pencils for quite a while now, I do believe they were part of my wedding anniversary present last year.. in July... so yeah, they have been around for a while but I've felt too intimidated to try them out. Nuts or what?? Well, for today's card I decided to be brave and just get on with it. And wow. Now I can't believe I waited to long to try them! I decided to use black card stock and gold glitter heat embossing for my card and the colours practically glow!! It's so cool!
