I have always been inspired by color...now not just one or two colors, but multiple colors that when seen together, exude specific emotions...the colors that inspire me today are lavender, white and green. It may have something to do with the fact that these colors are ALL AROUND me right now as the flowers shown below are all throughout my neighborhood.
Now for me, these colors together are calming. Whether it is sunny or cloudy outside, these colors calm me...ahhhhhhhh...a breath of fresh air in this hustle bustle life I live.
Today, I decided to take a frugal foto of these colors and use them as inspiration for a crafting project.
Here is my inspiration:
I used a TH stamp on the front of the card...a fitting sentiment, along with a Technique Tuesdays Ali Edwards stamp on the inside of the card. I was also inspired to use my new TH distress markers with an old stamp in my stash.
I pulled some white roses out of my stash and "dusted" them with some TH dusty concord distress ink, added some buttons and ribbon and completed my card.
PP - Making Memories from 2005...WOW this is old paper!
Cardstock - Bazill Basics
Stamps - card front-Tim Holtz and flower stamp from my stash/card inside-Ali Edwards from Technique Tuesday
Ribbon - from my stash (probably from Michaels)
Buttons - from my stash (probably off of an old shirt)
Border punch - EK Success
TH Distress markers - Dusty Concord and Pine Needles
TH Distress ink pads - Dusty Concord and Pine Needles
Using this color inspiration to make this card was very therapuedic.
I hope you find inspiration in color today!
