Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop. You are currently visiting Joanne Cantrell from middle of the United States. I hope you enjoy my Take Inspiration project I made just for you.
Yes, this month’s projects have all been inspired by our beautiful Ink & Inspiration logo. Some may be inspired by the colors, others by the geometric patterns, the watecoloring, or the black-on-pastel look. As for me, I think I was inspired by all of the above!
Simplicity at it’s finest right there! And, full disclosure… I whipped it out in under ten minutes. It really is that simple of a card. But, WOW!!! People would think you took hours on it.
First, I trimmed a piece of watercolor paper to 5-1/4″ x 4″. I found a lovely open flower in the Cake Soiree stamp set and used VersaMark and set white embossing powder to create the white patterns.
Then, using an Aquapainter, I covered the paper with water and applied bits of color from the ink pad covers. I used Flirty Flamingo, Peekaboo Peach, Crushed Curry, Marina Mist, and Emerald Envy. And presto… I have the background.
The foreground was even easier! All I did was cut the sentiment out of Basic Black Cardstock. And added a Flirty Flamingo Enamel Shape for interest.
Add a little Basic Black Shimmer Ribbon, and a black card base and you have a truly simple card inspired by our IIBH logo!
