June 2018 Inspiration Challenge

by Sveta Fotinia

Hello everyone!

Sveta here today to launch this month's Inspiration Challenge. I really love choosing inspiration for you so thanks for taking part in our challenges.
Inspiration Challenge 2018 06 03This time, I chose a photo of a bouquet that I got when my hubby took me and our baby Eva from the hospital so it's really special for me.

SvetaFotinia 5955For this card, I decided to play with the layered Rose Flurries 3D Die Set and watercolors.

SvetaFotinia 5959I liked the process as all I needed to do was to color the die-cuts and adhere them all together. Once I found the right place for all the parts, I added a sentiment from Rustic Linen Stamp Set on a strip of Parchment Cardstock that I also used as the card base.

SvetaFotinia 5962As a final touch, I sprayed the card with Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray.
