Artygirlz Challenge - Home Inspiration




This week at Artygirlz we have to use inspiration from something at home be it something with a pattern we like or colours we can use for ideas. I have three small vases on a ledge in my bathroom, the middle one was originally cream but I needed a cerise one so I used alcohol inks to change the colour and then added ribbons and brads round the tops. My card is made using these colours, I love browns and pinks together.
I stamped the swirls and embossed using clear powder, the strips of cards were scraps from my stash, added two flowers to the felt background circle, finished off with a skeleton leaf and brads.
Really simple card to make.
