Saturday - Inspiration!



Hello everybody! Well, I'm pretty much talking to myself, but that's okay. lol


Today I made a card using an inspiration piece posted by Stef on SCS. It is a beautiful bracelet. Oh wait, I know, I'll attach the photo of it. Well, I was inspired by all the beautiful shades of blue in the sea glass. I love those soft blue colors, so I went with that for my card. I don't have any shells or images like that in my stamp collection. Hmmmm, I see a void I may need to fill. lol
The card base is Cool Caribbean, with the birds and swirls cuttlebug folder. I used the negative effect technique from Monday with cool caribbean ink brayered inside the folder and onto soft sky cs. It is such a soft and lovely look. The heart and always are stamped with versamark onto soft sky and clear embossed and mounted onto cool caribbean. I think I've told you before how much I love clear embossing! ; ) The polka dot layer is a piece of the soft sky dp. I added a few pearls and ribbon and here you go. What do you think of my seaside charm card? Did I capture the feeling in the inspiration piece?

This is stunning! It has a feel of a nordic winter or something. Very original looking; I'd steal the idea if I owned a cuttlebug! :-)
