When you're having trouble finding inspiration to create a card, pairing up with a crafty friend is a great idea to help jump-start your creativity.They talked about just that in the Kickstart, online card class the other day, so, I was excited when my friend, Cindy, asked if we could pair-up and challenge each other. You can find Cindy's Flickr photostream here and her blog here. We decided to each use the same stamp from Hero Arts called, Large Flower Background. It's one of my faves and it was fun to pull it out and play with it again.
Here's my card:
I stamped the Large Flower Background in VersaMark and white embossed. Then I lightly colored two of the flowers with Copics and cut them out. The background panel was stamped with the Hero Arts, True Friends cling stamp. I used Hero Hues Lavender Dye Ink, stamping onto a lighter purple cardstock for a tone-on-tone look.
Please join me and pop over to Cindy's blog to see how she used this beautiful stamp!
Hope you all have a fun weekend! :)
