BIC16: Cool Blues and a Rooster or Two

Another week another Be Inspired Challenge brought to you by the super duper Beate. And this time I am posting the right card! The one that a few of you may have seen by accident last week! :)

I'm loving the beautiful cool tones in this sample as well as the small bursts of bright color on the shelves. I decided to duplicate this look on my card by using shades of blue and turquoise for the background layers and then some bright yellows and oranges for the main image... yeah those are a couple of alcoholic roosters. :)

The stamp set is Cocktails Anyone? by Inkadinkado. The rest of the stamps in this line are hilarious... I definitely need to get my hands on the lizard one as it is just too funny! I also used a bit of May Arts blue striped ribbon that I have been hoarding for a while. Must buy more now that I am down to just a scrap piece left. Or maybe I should just delve deeper in my collection of ribbon... maybe...

All images copyright Inkadinkado. Stamps: Cocktails Anyone? (Inkadinkado). Paper: Bashful Blue, Blue Bayou, Georgia Pacific white, Soft Sky designer, Tempting Turquoise designer. Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic markers (W1, R29, B34, B41, Y19, Y38, YR16, YR68, YG11), white gel pen. Other: Blue striped ribbon (May Arts), 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1/4" punch, white brads (Doodlebug), dimensionals.

Don't forget to check out the rest of samples by the uber-talented Inspiration Team: Jennifer, Susan, Silke, and Charmaine. Have a great day everyone!

  2. I like the "stitching" around the border and the sentiment. It attracts the eye and keeps it moving on the page.
    good job as usual !
    thanks for the inspiration
