{friend to friend} - Inspiration Challenge

I'm so happy that I got to play along with Keesh's Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge this week.

Here's the wee card I made for it:-

And here is our inspiration picture:-

To be honest I wasn't sure where to start... should I go Grey, should I go Yellow, should I go Black... in the end I used the "rectangle cushion" - the Teal one with the White pattern on it as my main inspiration.

Soooo... I started with a base of Taken with Teal and went from there. I used a small piece of So Saffron (actually on close inspection it could quite possibly be Barely Banana) - it's the yellow bit anyway.. hahaha, and a small strip of Basic Grey DSP. I then cut a small square of Taken with Teal and stamped an image from my Pocket Silhouettes set in Whisper White and then stuck that to one of my Metal edge tags. I used some Black ribbon and then mounted the tag onto some dimensionals. I also added a little Black button and the sentiment is stamped on Taken with Teal with Whisper White.

Hope you like.

Thanks for stopping by.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Pocket Silhouettes
Ink:- Whisper White
Paper:- Taken with Teal, Basic Grey DSP, So Saffron/Barely Banana
Accessories:- Black ribbon, Dimensionals, Square Metal Edge Tags, Black Button.
