Inspiration Station Challenge #3

 Hello, it is Easter Monday hope your Easter has been a happy one.

We have a new challenge for you today at Inspiration Station Challenge  where we are having a lot of fun and hope you are enjoying our challenges as well.   For this challenge we have a lovely picture to inspire you.

May be an image of flower

I love all the gentle colours and single blooms in the picture, they look like botanical samples laid out.

It was that single layering that struck me.  I have all manner of single plant images it was a matter of shifting through them and choosing which to use.  In the end this stamp from Woodware was chosen. 

Summer grasses are so pretty and very delicate looking.  This DL panel was first coloured with a blending of Adirondack inks giving the impression of a sunny summers day.  Then the image stamped in Memento brown.  The bee pollinators so vital to all our plant life this image is from Magenta, cannot recall who made the swirl of music stamp.  Before layering it onto the card base, with an square of blue mat as it reminds me of the sky, the edges of the panel were distressed adding a little texture.

How does our inspiration picture move you?  Share your makes with us at Inspiration Station Challenge.  At any rate we hope you will visit and see how the team have been moved they are a very creative and inspiring group of people.

The last day of the long Bank Holiday here in the UK, and it is gorgeous out there if a bit blowy.  I hope you can get out and enjoy it.  Stay Safe, Keep Well, Wear Your Mask especially if mixing, and HAVE FUN.

  2. Beautiful scene! Love the background's soft color! Thank you for playing at Dragonfly Dreams Challenge!

  3. I love the music of bees while watering my plants, Zoe! This card reminds me of the way I water each plant and watch all the little pollinators, seeing which blooms are garden faves for the tons of bees and wasps we have here. It's amazing how many are non-stingers LOL Your card is wonderful! hugs, de
