What a wonderful blog for today’s Inspiration Challenge (IC303) ! I spent a long time there and after I selected 3 for use as my inspiration, I realized that all 3 had almost identical color palettes. So I guess I was influenced more by the colors than anything else. The one I focused on is 08.11.2011. I just adore these colors! I wanted that blotchy color splatter seen in the table and I never quite got it, but this was as close as I could come. This is also for Our Daily Bread Designs Shining the Light ODBDSLC78 challenge, to use a quote as a main focus.
All images are Our Daily Bread designs. In order to get my colors, I used some inexpensive water color paper and 4 colors of acrylic paints: 2 of the coral/peach and two of the aqua/teal. On the two solid bgs, I wet the paper then floated in the 2 colors w/ a very wet paintbrush. I wanted that watery, splotchy look. On the patterned bg, I used all 4 colors then stamped on top w/ the crochet border and the teal ink.
On some of the coral, I stamped the lg silhouette label and die cut it. I cut out the oval center, added a teal oval and put it back w/ a little strip underneath. The largest coral layer has a corner image stamped w/ the coral chalk ink. The finished card is 5.5 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Friday! It’s my day to post on the DRS Designs Blog. Drop on by and I’ll show you what I did when I had a fun sentiment but no image to go with it. Don’t laugh…. I bet it’s happened to you, lol. Actually, there are 2 more posts dealing with the same problem and same sentiment. Come see how we solved the problem….
