For Your Inspiration Challenge - IT"S NEW!
Welcome to the 1st challenge on the For Your Inspiration blog!
My first love in crafting is making handstamped cards, so that is primarily what you'll be seeing from my DT entries. I was inspired by the diamond grid on the unusual architecture (isn't that just the coolest building ever?!) and knew I wanted to create a recessed diamond BG by scoring at 1/2" intervals, then rubbing Marina Mist ink over Marina Mist CS. The gently curved buildings reminded me of the long leaves that shoot up when my irises are blooming. I also took the sky colors to inspire my colors - the dark blue with a hint of lavender in the sunset. This challenge is supposed to be fun and that's exactly what I had - fun! I'm anxious to see what you might be inspired to create with this lovely scene as your starting point!
