Hello and welcome to the second Inspiration Station challenge. This is something my sister and I started, just as another reason to create, another way to get inspired, but, of course, without the pressure!
The second inspiration are pictures of Electroformed Crystal Bowls, which we found at the website, This is Colossal.
And this is what I made –
I took my inspiration from the picture in the center, and the colors too, of course. I didn’t get an idea of adding the crackle texture on my card, instead I added the foam mounted background die cut, by coloring them in similar colors. The flowers, I colored in the two shades of blue – but it looks like a single color in the images here. I added a single silver gemstone in the center of each flower after adhering them on the card.
Then came the sentiment. I swiped the colors using a cream chalk ink on a pale yellow cardstock, then swiped a gold pigment ink pad to create stripes and then silver pigment ink pad to create some more stripes. Before this completely dried, I rubbed the ink a bit, so that it blended a bit. I used this to die cut the ‘big’ word. I stacked the die cut alphabets on kraft die cuts and added it on top of three layers of circle die cuts. I then added the small ‘thanks’ on top.
Supplies used –
Lil Inker Designs Diamond Chevron for the background die cut
Elizabeth Designs Bunch of Flowers
Reverse Confetti Lacy Scallop Circles and Itsy Bitsy Scalloped Circles behind the sentiment
Altenew Bold Alphabet dies and Winne & Walter Sentimental: Thanks for the sentiment
