Double the Inspiration

Hope everyone is having a WONDERFUL weekend!! I've just been putzin' around today and came up with a double challenge card!!

I just love all the unique sites that Steph comes up with for the inspiration challenges on SCS. This weeks was from Design Dazzle. I spent waaaaayyyy too much time just cruising the site and the blog before getting serious and picking this nursery as my inspiration. I really liked the CAS pop that this room has. I over thought the layout and after messing around with several ideas~~this is what I came up with:

This also worked for this weeks Ways to Use it Challenge which was to make our own images to fit a design need. I pulled out my SU sponge daubers and inked it in Only Orange. Using my copics cias I added a bit a shading. Interesting effect, IRL. The alcohol inks on the water based inks doesn't blend the same way as alcohol on alcohol. But I rather liked the look so kept with it! I hand drew the "stems" and cut out the leaves free hand from an old SU 6x6 print pack. I used my Versamarker on the leaves to add some shadow. Cut a strip from the same DP and used my scallop punch for the border along the side. I decided against adding a sentiment. This card just seemed like the type of card one would grab for a quick note. Supplies: Paper: Gina K's 120# pure luxury, SU 6x6 designer pack. Inks: Only Orange, copic ciaos, versamarker and chocolate chip marker. Accessories: Scallop punch, sponge daubers
