Hello! This week at Just Us Girls, Bobby has the Photo Inspiration challenge. She chose this fresh and summery photo.
Here's a closeup so you can see more details.
When I saw those cookies with the swirly frosting on them, I immediately thought of the Circle Scribbles stamp set from PTI. So I stamped them on watercolor paper and embossed them with white embossing powder. I then watercolored them with distress inks in colors I took from the inspiration photo. The sentiment and butterflies were embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder, even thought they look gold. I added sequins for additional interest. I usually use white card stock as my base, but today I used a coral card stock instead. The main panel is on craft foam. I should also mention that this card is a CASE of Danielle Flanders' card. I looked up this stamp set on PTI and saw her card. It was just what I was looking for as inspiration on how to use this set (for the first time!).
You can see more from the design team and our guest on the JUGs blog.
