Another 'Inspired by.......'


The picture that inspired me for today's card is one from a store catalogue featuring a plate and a tray, above right. The stamp I have used is Parlor Prints and is one I've had for ages and hardly used but I thought it would be ideal for the black and pink pattern. As I didn't want the image too dark, and I also wanted to colour over the roses, I used Basic Gray on Whisper White and then coloured the flowers with a Melon Mambo marker, highlighted a little with a white gel pen. I rounded the corners for a softer finish before matting onto Basic Gray which had also been stamped with Parlor Pints and then added a knot of Rose Red Seam Binding. After fixing to a card blank I added a sentiment from teeny Tiny Wishes and a butterfly punched from the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly punches. Can you spot the mistake? I didn't until I uploaded the photo. I used Melon Mambo for the butterfly along with Rose Red ribbon!! It really isn't noticeable on the card however, now I know, I will be changing it to a Rose Red butterfly :0)
