Have you read Nichole's blog today? If not, here it is! Just an incredible amount of inspiration in one place, lol- so much so, that at first I figured I wouldn't participate since the perfect had already been done, kwim? Well, that was probably the 'night shift worker lack of sleep' talking, so when I got up this afternoon I decided...ok, I'll play!!
The first photo is Becky's inspiration photo (here's her interpretation), the next is my interpretation! I did not veer too much from what Becky did, just tweaked it a tiny bit.
I used Beautiful blooms for the flowers, stamped in Pure Poppy, L'Amour Red, Lemon Tart, Paris Lights, Pink Toile, Spring Moss, Ripe Avocado, and Summer Sunrise. I love it when all of those colors come together! I cut the stamped image by hand to resemble a headboard, then layered on Dark Chocolate and cut it out again- lot of work, lol!
Next layer is Spring Moss with Faux Ribbon in SU's Whisper White, then all is layered on an A-6 of Pure Poppy. Sentiment is from Faux Ribbon as well, stamped in Dark Chocolate. It's always risky doing this at the end, lol, but it really is straight, although it looks a wee bit crooked in the photo.
Last, of course, were the buttons- PTI buttons, of course! while I love the buttons in the Inspiration photo (and would love to own some!), I find it hard to do off center and odd numbers- so mine are just stuck on in a straight line. I used hemp and Linen thread (both SU) to do different ties, then put them on with glue dots.
I'm glad I played! Now to try and go back to bed and dream of baby cards, lol lol lol!!!
