It's Tuesday and time for another Inspiration Challenge from Beate! This week's is a bright and cheery purse. Don't you just want this purse?! I do!
*The purse is by Belle Bags and you can find them at www.shysiren.com!
For me the colors immediately caught my eye: Old Olive, Black and a shade of Turquoise... pretty! Of course there is also some light yellow and a Not Quite Navy but we are pretending that we don't see them since I did not use them in my sample. :)
I used the Merry & Bright stamp set for the focal points and to create texture on the background cardstock layers. There is a snowman in this set, but I'm saving him for another Snowman Sunday.
Quick notes: I stamped the trees four times and colored all of them with markers, however I cut two of them out and adhered them over the other two with dimensionals. Just a little extra pop. I added a touch of Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the branches. Each layer of the card was distressed with its matching Classic ink (except the Black layers, cause that would be overkill and you wouldn't see it anyways). I used some gingham ribbon, a Little Felt Flurry and a crystal brad to accent the card. Cute enough, dontcha' think?
For more great samples check out the rest of the Inspiration Team: Jennifer, Susan, Silke, Dawn and Charmaine. Make sure to visit Beate's blog for the full details and to see sample!
