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!
