Is it just me, or are you too getting the post-Christmas-get-those-reds-and-greens-away-from-me? Whatever it is, this inspiration photo from Addicted to Stamps and More #175 caught my eye.
The flowers, the colors, that shabby chair. This is what I did with it, going pretty CAS.
Gearing up for the new release week at STAMPlorations, I pulled out the new Big Greetings and heat embossed the simple sentiment onto die cut vellum (representing the shabby white chair). The stripes stamped with brush strokes from Celebrate Artsy and Holiday Artsy (but you could watercolor them too) were totally inspired by the colors of that amazing bouquet.
I'm also playing at The Artistic Stamper where it's Anything Goes this month.
Happy weekend all! DD returns from a week of skiing today. Ellie will sure be glad to see her. (Me too, although I'm already imagining the mountains of laundry...)
