pinterest inspired

The ladies over at Pinterest Inspired challenge always get my attention with their inspiration photos. Here is April's.


I was playing with white acrylic paint and had some left over, so I grabbed a square piece of foam and stamped it randomly onto a piece of watercolor CS. I had the watercolor style of the inspiration photo in mind.

Then with Winnie and Walter Eva's Flowers I created an artsy floral background by inking the solid stamps with two colors of Distress Inks (Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries, Spiced Marmelade, Mustard Seed) and spritzing them before stamping. I added a couple of the outline images in black for contrast and spritzed the entire panel with a Perfect Pearls mixture to soften all the edges when I was done. Oh and I watercolored the BG with Tumbled Glass too.


Here's the finished product. A sentiment from STAMPlorations Artful Flutters and some Amy Tangerine PP. I'm sharing this card at The Artistic Stamper where it's about All Things Distress (which I hope includes Distress Inks too!) and The Craft Stamper where it's about Flowers in April. And I'm hooking up at the w&w Join In to Win too.


Hope you likey! And hope your week will be a good one.

Gorgeous. Yep. I like this card very, very much, Maria. The colors and textures are so captivating, and they've drawn my eyes right in. The b&w grid/polkies are the perfect foil for this. Hey wait! This isn't a card! This is purely beautiful art! Love it! Bev

Gorgeous! I love the subtle texture that the paint blocks give, and the contrast of the soft floral background against the black outlines and b/w pp. Thanks for playing along at Craft Stamper Take It Make It :)
