Practicing Creativity

Inspired by Stamping Design Team

It is with great pleasure that I announce my selection for the Inspired by Stamping Design Team. I consider it  an honor to work with such talented ladies and I look forward to creating with Inspired by Stamping's beautiful designs.

Here's the card I submitted with my application.

I multi-stamped, cut and layered the flowers for a 3D effect. Stamps were colored with colored pencil.

As I mentioned in an earlier post on how I color most of my stamped images, color pencils are great for a soft, transparent kind of color, but they're not good for detail. To get the little detail on the flower petals, I took a tiny tipped paint brush, inked it with Distress and with quick, light strokes added the detail.

Doesn't this stick pin look like marble? I thought it worked nicely with the color scheme. It was a tad too long though, I cut it back a bit.

This lovely photo was our inspiration:

Be sure and check out the other Design Team member's blogs and cards, pure eye candy!
