Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge 36

It's time for the second September Divine Diva challenge already?  Time seems to move in hyper-drive since I stopped working.  Maybe it's true that time really does fly when you're having fun.  Who knew?

Speaking of fun, this book cover was our inspiration this time.  I already had my DoodleFactory Backlit Blooms stamps out on my table, so naturally, I used those.  This is the poppies stamp, and I just covered up the poppies with a couple of big Prima flowers.  I didn't have two flowers in the color I wanted, so I airbrushed them with Copic markers.  At 5 inches by 7 inches, this card is a bit bigger than I usually make, and I have to say, I like the bigger format.

Be sure to check out the cards made by all the Divine Divas for this challenge!


Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment on Lori's blog with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on online forums will be DDIC36.  Have fun and look for the next challenge on October 7th.
