"Challenge card from Sheraton hotel room...Peekaboo Peach and Fresh Fig or Berry burst? Anyone? Go!" And she included this picture:
But before I even made it to my craft room, Bonnie sent off this pic:
So what to do? I had already been working on another card, but put it away and began pulling out colors and supplies. And came up with this:
Completely different take, but can you see where the idea originated? Yes, that ball was my inspiration, and I made a background for my main image using the colors and varied-sized stripes.
I started with a piece of Very Vanilla and covered it with a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets (you NEED this product!). Then I used my Stampin' Trimmer to slice off strips of Peekaboo Peach, Fresh Fig and Basic Black, varying the widths.
Beautiful You was my choice for the stamping - a set I haven't used much lately, but I thought would be a good image for this sophisticated background. I stamped the figure on Very Vanilla using Tuxedo Black, and colored her with Rich Razzleberry Stampin' Blends, both light and dark. Her skin tone is Ivory. I finished the panel by lightly sponging Peekaboo Peach in a "halo" effect around the figure.
So where do you get your inspiration? Just look around and see what catches your eye. Then get into your craft space and create!
