Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #24
It's time for another Divine Diva Inspiration challenge. I knew that I wanted to make an Easter card, but other than that, I had no idea what to do with this challenge. Surprisingly, though, once I sat down at my table, everything just kind of fell into place.
The first thing I did was grab a piece of kraft card stock and emboss it in my Cuttlebug. Then to more closely mimic the look of the rattan headboard, I highlighted the embossing with some brown chalk ink and matted the panel with another piece of kraft card stock.
While I was doing that, I remembered an old Stamp Cabana floral egg stamp way in the back of one of my stamp drawers. Perfect! The design picks up the floral pattern from the pillow, and I used Copic markers to color it with the same scheme as the inspiration photo. I did think briefly about adding some embellishments, but decided against it because I'm pretty happy with this one just the way it is.
Everyone is invited to play along in the Divine Diva challenges, and you can link your creation here. If you upload to PCP or SCS, use the keyword DDIC. For even more inspiration, please visit the other Divine Divas: Anne, Chris, Lori, Julie, and Kerri
