BIC12: Brilliant Tangerine

Beate came up with another brilliant inspiration piece for the Be Inspired Challenge. This one is a Tangerine Courtyard Print from Coldwater Creek. Isn't it pretty?

So what did I pick from the inspiration piece? Well I started off with a layout. I like the wall on the left side with the potted tree so I duplicated that on my card with a strip of red and Chocolate Chip satin ribbon. Then for the right side I added a pretty scene... in this case a little bench with a red birdie. The final result doesn't look much like the inspiration piece but that is how things go sometimes. :)

Quick notes: main image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Georgia Pacific white cardstock and then colored with Copics. Yes, I heart my Copics. For the background a piece of Real Red cardstock was adhered to the left side of a Sahara Sand mat and Always Artichoke Prints designer was added to the right. The edges were paper pierced and wide satin Chocolate Chip ribbon was knotted around the piece. Then the layers were assembled together on a 5" x 5" Chocolate Chip card base.

Don't forget to check out all of the other wonderful samples by the rest of the inspiration team: Jennifer, Susan, Silke, Dawn and Charmaine.
