TMS#98: Inspiration Challenge

Good morning! Today we have a bit of a different challenge for Tuesday Morning Sketches...it's an inspiration challenge! Our inspiration is a photograph of a scent I recently bought; not only does it smell wonderful, it's packaged beautifully!

I will have to admit, I am not one who usually likes this type of challenge...I have a hard time thinking out of the box. One look at those beautiful flowers though, and I was hooked! It was fun to make something totally different; for instance, I would have never came up with the unusual color scheme on my own and I rarely use gold brads.

I colored my image with pencils, added a bit of texture with an embossing folder and kept the layout simple to keep the focus on the flowers. I used the EK Success "retro flower" punch and rolled the petals of the larger flowers under, and added gold brads to the centers. I popped them up for added dimension.

Image: Stamping Bella "Daisybella"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Blushing Bride and Summer Sun
Embellies: Spare Parts Gold Brads
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Sissix Embossing Folder, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

Now it's your turn; I would love to see what you come up with using the inspiration photo! Be sure to stop by the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to see what the rest of the DT has created too.

Thanks for stopping by!
