Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge 35

It's the first Thursday in September, and that means it's time for a Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge.

The photo Lori chose for us this time is a page from a Sundance Catalog.  I just love all the character in that wooden chest, so I tried to duplicate that in my background panel.  There's lots of stamping, sponging, embossing, sanding, and stamping again on there.  In real life, it really does have quite a bit of depth and character.  Too bad my photo skills aren't good enough to show you!

The flower image I used in a new DoodleFactory Backlit Bloom from Starving Artistamps.  I stamped the flowers with Fluid Chalk ink onto a piece of light aqua paper.  The paper has a beautiful fabric texture, and the chalk ink works really well to show off all that texture.

Kerri couldn't join us today, but 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 DDIC35. Have fun and look for the next challenge on September 16!
