Last month, we let the cat out of the bag and told you that once in a while we'd usher in what we called a Pinter-inspiration challenge. We're getting on the Pinterest bandwagon and even have a Flourishes page HERE showing not only all of our sets but cards and techniques that inspire us! So, today's Pinter-inspiration is one inspired by the website Design Seeds. Here's a peek at what they do!!!
They take an image and then, produce a color palette taken from the gorgeous photo! You'll have to check out their website HERE for their literal daily inspiration! I could literally spend hours on their site!
HOW TO PLAY! So, do you want a chance to win Flourishes entire March Release? All you need to do is be inspired by the color palette above and use it in a creation! Once you are done, just link up here using the inlinkz widget and you will be in the running. You have until Friday, March 16th at 5PM EST to enter! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don't -- play along anyway -- you would win some! The winner will receive all three sets and our new Tailor-made die that will be unveiled in our newest release starting NEXT WEDNESDAY! If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, don't forget to use the keyword MAR12PIN! Good Luck!
These colors are really beautiful, but I have to admit that they really stumped me! I think I pulled it off though.
First I cut a piece of Flourishes Classic White card stock with a Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole die then I used the lovely set Birds and Vines. I stamped the large vine image with a VersaMagic Dew Drop in Eggplant with the die still in place so that I would have a nice clean border. Then I sponged around the image with a VersaMagic Dew Drop in Spring Pansy. I lightly colored in the leaves on the vine with Copics-as it smears chalk ink, I had to be extra careful not to touch the lines. I used a Quickie Glue Pen and some Martha Stewart glitter and added sparkle to the flowers. Then I stamped a bird with the same ink in Turquoise Gem and cut it out and added it to the sentiment which is from the Tag Lines set. The polka dot paper is a scrap and I don’t recall the maker. I did emboss a white panel with a swiss dots folder from Cuttlebug.
