Inspired by Stamping IC

Hello freinds!  Today I am honored to be guest designing for Inspired by Stamping




Isn't this inspiration picture yummy??


When I printed off the inspiration photo, the brown ink looked lighter than this photo does now.  Yikes!  Well, I used kraft but sponged with Latte ink so hopefully this brown will do.  I wanted to capture the beautiful roses,  and I was thrilled to find some dp with little daisies on it as well, which fit the inspiration photo to a tee!


I used a  Sweet Stamps  image, colored with Copics.  My sentiment is Hero Arts and cut with a Spellbinders Back to Basics Tag.  My base is kraft and the designer paper is Loolah (Iron Orchids designs) from Hobby Lobby, and Memory Box Gossamer.  The ribbon is May Arts silk and bakers twine. 

Wouldn't you love to play along?
Rules of the challenge: Use the colors in the photo as your main colors. Upload your card/project to your blog or online gallery and leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of the IBSIC Blog post


At this time ALL products (stamps, paper, dies) are welcomed. You do not have to incorporate an IBS stamp set or flowers. (However when you see them, you will want them!  Just sayin... )




Thanks for stopping by and please stop by Inspired by Stamping and check out the awesome challenge!
