CSS - Inspiration Blog Hop - 5/11/2012


It is another StampTV blog hop. It is an inspiration challenge, these happen to be the most difficult for me. I think I look at the picture for eons trying to see what elements I want. This picture was selected by Brenda - isn't it pretty? Here is what I came up with.
 
You should have arrived from Linda Payne's blog with what I am sure was a wonderful project! 

I loved making the brick wall look with my Scor-Buddy and some distress inks on some Pure Luxury White. The back panel is some Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart.Then I found some patterned paper from Basic Grey that looks a little like a quilt. The basket (stamped on Kraft) and roses are from Melanie's Spring Basket and Buds and Vases. I cut out the roses several times and popped up the layers. The roses were colored with Copics.The ribbon was in my stash.
Now hop on over to visit Sharri Seffens, the creator of the sketch, for some more fabulous eye candy. If you want to start at the beginning or get lost along the way, just jump directly to the links for all of the wonderful creations on StampTV.

Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (May 15), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs and that person will receive a huge grab bag of fabulous Gina K. Designs Stamps!

Thanks for stopping by!

Sheila said...

The way that the card is colored (especially the bricks) has the effect of sun shining on the wall. This combined with the texture and the raised flowers result in a gorgeous, realistic looking scene. Superb job!
