Closet inspired #7

Hi there!

Sometimes you just need a little nudge to get direction again ... thank you Nancy for steering me back to my closet inspired series of cards 💗

Making these cards inspired by something from my closet need a special thinking cap and maybe that's the reason why I took a little break .

Inspiration for today's card came from a new swimsuit I bought just this week! I fell in love with the flowers, pattern and colors the moment I saw it. To top it all... it's comfortable and fits like a glove!

My card:

I used:

  • SSS Beautiful Flowers stampset
  • Zig markers
  • Unbranded quatrefoil stencil
  • Silhouette cameo to cut out the stamp
  • Altenew ink
  • Versafine black ink
  • Misti stamping tool
  • Rhinestones

To be honest... when I started the card I wasn't too sure how the design will translate to paper... more so because the whole look is so far from my CAS comfort zone . But I love the end result ! The only thing I would change is to add a little more pink to the flowers. IRL the flowers do look more purple than pink though!

Thanks for visiting me today!

An absolutely gorgeous reproduction! I, too, was wondering about your closet inspired cards, but no pressure. I've enjoyed these posts. Beautiful swimsuit. I'd be better off with a swimsuit that fits like a sack, tee hee.

How did I miss this wonderful card!? You replicated your gorgeous swimsuit so well! I sometimes wonder if you bought your clothes first or stamps first. :-P Love your photo styling too! Hideko xx
