After all this time, I may be getting the hang of these photo inspiration challenges. So many times I try to replicate something so specifically that I tear my hair out trying to find the right stamp or paper or color. I was thinking that way about Therese Calvird's card at MUSE this week.
I have a stamp that looks like Wisteria so I could have done that. But the more I thought about it the less I liked the idea. Okay, so let me see. Flowers, purple green. And so this card was born, not without a few labor pains and some difficulty, I might add.
It's really a more reddish purple (Dusty Concord Distress Ink) IRL but this is the best my camera would do even after monkeying with it. I heat embossed the Queen Anne's lace with white on watercolor paper and colored the background. After letting it dry for a day, I stamped the stems and leaves with HA Field Greens. I tried to emboss the sentiment directly onto the paper but it didn't come out so to save it, I embossed it on vellum and laid that across the corner.
Thanks for stopping by. I love it when you visit.
