Beate’s Inspiration Challenge today was the perfect chance to use my new SU! set called “Eastern Influences”.  Here is the inspiration photo.


And here is the card I made that was inspired by it.


The image was made by coloring directly onto the rubber with markers and then spritzing with water before stamping.  After stamping the flowers were colored in with a Pretty in Pink marker.

I wish that SU! made brown brads.  With each new catalog I search to see if they have finally decided to carry them.   But they still don’t, so I make my own.

Using the antique brass brads and a pair of tweezers, I push them into my Chocolate Chip Craft stampin’ spot.  Then I quickly and lightly spray them with Clear Finish.  I push them into the stampin’ spot again then use my heat gun to dry them.  I love the matte finish it creates.  But I’m still hoping that the next new catty will be the one!

See what the other challenge team members have created today using this beautiful photo as their inspiration.
