Pinterest Inspired Challenge

Happy Friday!! Is every one anticipating a wonderful weekend? There are still leaves on the trees in Connecticut but they are falling fast. I need to get Charlotte's Christmas photo done before the are all gone!!

That said, I had a bit of a set back and have been experiencing a lot of pain. I am now confining myself to rest for the next couple of days. Just when I think I am feeling better too!!

Today I wanted to shared two cards I created using the Pinterest Inspired Challenge image for October. The light colors screamed sympathy cards to me so I created two.

The first one is very simple. I used distress inks to stamp the flowers and leaves in Shaded Lilac and Pumice  Stone. I inked up the stamp, misted it with water and then stamped it on the watercolor paper. When the images dried, I stamped the sentiment and die cut the panel.

I then mounted the panel on gray card stock and added some clear rhinestones.

Here is the inspiration image:

The second card I created I got a bit more adventurous for me.

Again I used Distress ink in the same two colors and stamped the images randomly over the entire panel of water color paper. I let the images dry and then shook mist on in silver and Shaded Lilac. I wanted to mute the stamped images a bit so I die cut a piece of vellum and layered it over the card front.

I then created a silver thread nest, added a sentiment and a few sequins from my stash. I love these pretty colors together, don't you?

I thank you for stopping by today! Have a wonderful weekend!!
