Blogger's Challenge #68: Inspiration


Stamps: Stinkin' Cute (ret.), Posy background, and All Year Cheer all by SU!; Oval shadow by Amuse
Paper:
Real Red; Basic Black; White; DS by Imaginisce

Ink
: Black Staz On; versamark; going gray; black, real red, and garden green markers

Other: lg white ric rac; rhinestone brads from SU! Dazzling Diamonds
Card Measures 5x5

We were given this photo as our inspiration. I have done several cards with these colors during the past few months. But last night nothing was coming to me. I feel like I lost my mojo lately. If anyone finds it please send it back. LOL! I need it! Anyhoooo, I stood looking at my stamp sets...waiting...and grabbed this skunk one. I ordered this and mounted it a long time ago...and never used it. The colors worked...so why not finally ink it up.

Do you know that I use to hate any images I had to color? Most of the SU! stamps I have are block images like this. I guess I was just too impatient to spend much time coloring. Also, for a long time the only stamping I did was for workshops or swaps...I certainly didn't want to spend 30-45 minutes each coloring 11 images! What I am getting at is that this card was so quick! I spent more time deciding on how to layer the cardstock and lining up the brads than I did completing the image. Seemed so easy!

Have a Fab-i-liscious Friday!
