Inkspirational Photo Challenge

Hi everyone,


Well we have a wonderful new Photo Challenge over at Inkspirational.


I have gone very pink in my card and created the background on the Very Vanilla Cardstock by adding marker colours to a clear block with some water.  I haven’t used my markers for a while so it was good to try a few different colours to see what created the best background.


It took a few goes to get the right background but I like the one I eventually settled on.


The image is from the Serene Silhouettes stamp set and has been stamped in Chocolate Chip ink.

The lovely ribbon is the Two-Tone Ribbon Pink Pirouette/ Rose Red.


Here is my card







Stamp set: Serene Silhouettes

Card: Raspberry Ripple, Very Vanilla
Ink: Chocolate Chip

Accessories:  Framed Tulips Embossing Folder, Two Tone Ribbon, Regal Rose, Primrose Petals, Raspberry Ripple, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive






Here is the inspirational photo:






I love the image to me it just seems to capture a lovely spring day.

I love the effect you've created with makers and water on your clear block! The image is lovely, I love the silhouette feel of it, and it's a great layout too. This is such a classy and elegant card!

This is a lovely card Meg, perfect for Spring! I've tried just inking an acrylic block but not tried with water as well - what a great look!
