Our 5th Challenge for INK4U! this time was a gorgeous INKspiration challenge … using the picture shown here! The great thing about INKspiration challenges is that you can use anything you see in the challenge pic. Colours / Lines/ Images / Embellishments etc etc. It is almost a FREE challenge. I loved the colours in this pic … including the tiny hint of Cherry Cobbler (the phone) … so I chose to use the Colours as my Inkspiration! I was desperate to ink up my brand new “Bliss” (Sale-a-bration) stamp set … so this is what I came up with!
I have had several comments on the INK4U site … that it looks like I have created my own background DSP. The main flourish image has been stamped off on scrap paper before stamping on the card. This means that the bird stamp stands out a little better … because it has been stamped directly onto the card and so … is a little deeper in colour. I have seen so many gorgeous cards around using this set … it is so divine! And … so versatile! I have this vague idea that I saw a card like this via my blog travels recently. I didn’t deliberately CASE this … and I have tried searching for my inspiration … but if this was something I saw in cyberland and you would like acknowledgement … please let me know! 😉
The Cherry Cobbler seam binding (ribbon) is some “contraband” (ie. not available in AUS) from Fiona who has a lovely friend in the US who often shares some of her SU! purchases with Fi. Wouldn’t it be lovely to get some “happy mail” like that from time to time! I do hope we get some of this seam binding in the next catty. It is so soft and easy to work with! I want to hoard it … because I only have a small amount. But … I do love it!!! 😉
You will all be pleased to know (for those who have been nagging me!!!) that … I finally got to the docs this morning. Typically … by the time you go to the docs … you are feeling better … BUT … the cough is still driving me nuts … so I am glad that I went. It have an Rx for antibiotics … and have to contact her if I am not finding any improvement in a few days. I am hoping to do some stamping soon. I don’t think I have picked up a stamp for about 10 days!!! I am running out of things to show you! Don’t forget to add a comment to my 150,000 hits post … to enter the blog candy comp! Anyway … gotta go … C U soon! Hugs xxaxx
