It's time for another smARTworks Design Team Tea Party, and Trish is our hostess this time. Trish decided on an inpiration challenge using this beautiful piece of framed artwork.
I just love the loose, casual feel of the blocked background, and when I saw the white flowers, I immediately thought of stamping with bleach.
To create the background for my card, I masked off the sections one at a time. Working in sections I used my SU Classic Ink spots in Brocade Blue, Certainly Celery, and Always Artichoke to ink my rubber brayer. I reinked and brayered until I had a look that I liked. Then, just to add some definition to the edges, I applied more ink with a sponge. I stamped my hydrangea with bleach, let it dry, and added some ribbon (what's a card without ribbon?) and a mat, and there you have it. An pretty easy card to make, but one I really like.
Be sure to check out the inspired creations made by the other cookies (links are over to the right). I believe everyone is playing except for Susan T. who is still trying to recover from a bout with the flu last week.
Hope you're back to your young self again soon, Susan, and thanks for a fun challenge, Trish!
