Crazy 4 Challenges C4C512 - Be Inspired By A Card You Received

 It's time for a new Crazy 4 Challenges challenge and this week is different!  The challenge is to choose a card that someone sent you and create your card using inspiration from that one!  I chose a card sent to me by my bloggy friend, Teresa at TheresasCraftyCreations!

Here's the inspiration card:

So beautiful, right?  I was so lucky to be the recipient!  And here's how I was inspired:

I loved Theresa's beautiful and shimmery blended background.  I used a couple reds making it lighter as I worked my way to the top right corner.  I actually did my ink blending first this time.  I'd like to say I did it on purpose, but it was a happy accident.  When I realized I still had to emboss but had already started blending, I decided to just keep going.  I figured I'd try just drying it with my heat gun and then swiping on some anti static powder.

After I got done blending the ink, I used the powder and then stamped on the single flowers from the Woodcut Floral background stamp set from Miss Ink with Versamark.  when I added the embossing powder, some did stick in a few places and I decided I didn't really mind!  Once I heated it up it kind of added to the cool look of the background.  And lastly I sprayed on some Inkon3 Liquid Pixie Dust and patted it dry to lift more of the ink.

I love how it turned out!

I created my sentiment in a similar way as on the inspiration card as well!  I used the Celebrate die from the Streamers set and part of a sentiment from the new Season's Greetings set.

I hope you'll come and play along with us over at Crazy 4 Challenges!  Pick out a card you received that inspires you and create something then link it up!

Thanks for stopping and come again soon!
