For Your Inspiration #10

Well hello there! This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my CASE study challenge post.

For Your Inspiration #10 is up today and here's the gorgeous photo.



Now who wouldn't be inspired by those fabulous, rich colours! I was also inspired by the steps so scored my cream panel in the lower third and then added a vellum flower coloured with a mixture of barn door distress ink and pumpkin pie ink.


The stem was coloured with peeled paint distress ink. I love how distress inks give such vibrant colour on vellum. To increase the intensity of the colour I painted on the front and back of the image and then curled the petals around a paint brush handle to give them dimension. A strip of terracotta tile card grounded the image and was a good lead from the sentiment.


Please pop by the other designers to see more fabulous inspiration:
