Inspiration Pic

Hi all!  Yesterday I got a Brighton catalog in the mail and was immediately drawn to this large handbag:


I was so inspired, I decided to make a card based on it.  Here’s what I came up with:


I used The Ton’s Large Peony 1 and Fresh Cut Dahlias (sentiment), the Folk Art Medallion set from WMS, and also the Circular Lattice stencil from Prima.  I sponged white pigment ink through the stencil to make a guide for my stamping.  I then stamped 2 different little motifs from the Medallion set to make up the background.

I stamped the peony on watercolor paper and watercolored with Distress Inks (Festive Berries and Black Soot), then cut it out with my ScanNCut2.  I added the sentiment on a fishtail banner, then popped up the peony with foam tape.

This is for SSS Work It Wednesday – Thank you cards and Shopping Our Stash – no patterned paper.  I hope you like it and TFL!
