Welcome back to a new year of fabulous photos to inspire you to create over on the Inspired By...All The Little Things challenge blog! I knew right away I wanted to use Altenew's Vintage Flowers stamp set when I saw the roses. The vertical line of the fabric and the touches of gold in the chairs were other elements that inspired my card.
I incorporated gold/white striped paper from Recollections' Blush and Mint 6x6 pad and also stenciled metallic gold embossing paste (Wendy Vecchi) over a watercolor wash of red violet Mijello Mission Gold paint on Ranger watercolor CS. I used an angled brush in a zig zag motion to imitate the fabric folds. I tried to keep the watercoloring and Dot Fade Stencil (Tim Holtz) in a generalized vertical line. The sentiment is from Altenew's Painted Greetings set and was stamped twice with a MISTI using Versafine Onyx Black ink. I tucked in some loops of black thread so the black sentiment wouldn't feel alone - lol! The struggle was real trying to decide what color to use with the sentiment. :-)
INK: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry distress inks by Tim Holtz.
