"Pretty Peonies" Cards
Hello out there!
Posting today a couple of cards whose inspiration came from a bottle of bath wash :)
I couldn't find an image from their website, but it's Mark & Spencers China Blue Bath Wash :) I had been inspired by the colors and how the flowers are arranged (yes, while i was bathing haha!).
This first card has colors close to those on the bottle.
Did some experimenting with the misaligned stamping (smaller peony images) in different ink colors. When i look at it, these images look, well, blurred LOL! It takes my eyes back to focusing on the bigger peony images though.
Also had trouble placing the sentiment as i stamped the images first and the sentiment last. Next time i'd do the sentiment first.
i think am going to try doing another card with these same colors, but minus the "blurry" images :)
Did this second card in Melon Berry ink.
How about you, do you find inspiration in the most unexpected places? What's your strangest piece/place of inspiration? :)
Thanks for taking time to visit today! Hope you have a good day as well!
