INKSPIRATIONS INSPIRATION CHALLENGE #8









Firstly I just want to take the time to say that I apologise for not doing any blog surfing this week I really love checking out all the challenge entries and I have not had a minute to myself :(
Anyhow I hope to have a better week this week more stamping and more surfing, fingers crossed hehehe
Well the Inspirational photo this week was superb I really love these colours together Sahara Sand and Kiwi Kiss, don't need much Inspiration for this combo.
The stamp set I used was SU Fifth Avenue, I stamped in craft white ink and white embossed, I layered the image using coordinating DSP paper urban oasis and urban garden, I have seen quite a few paper flowers around and thought that I would try giving the edges a bit of texture and I think that it makes the rose look that bit more real.
Embellishments used were the lovely Kiwi Kiss satin ribbon and a Designer button from the button bouquet.
Thank you to all that lovely people that leave encouraging comments I hope to get back to you all sometime soon..............

Hi Amy,

I thought this was just lovely. The white embossed flower then cut up in layers looks so soft and the kiwi button and bow on the side just set it all off.
