There is a challenge that always inspires me. The reason? Unknown. This site makes my inspiration flow in a way no other does. It is the Our Daily Bread blog. This week they have an inspiration challenge going on ODBDSLC187 based on this picture:
Wow, what a beautiful color palette to work with… And so many little details to pick up and transfer to a project. This is what I came up with:
In the card for today I definitely worked with every single color in the picture. I used at least 4 different layers to show them. The first layer is a vintage handwriting paper, which is my interpretation of the antique cottage decor. The second layer is the exact tone of blue that appears in various decorative elements.
The third layer is ribbon and lace; the first one, picks up that cherry blossom pink that I love, and the second one brings that doily feeling to the card.
The fourth layer is a tricky one… Can you guess what I was thinking of when I did it? See those pretty details on that floral china? Yes! Also, this layer frames all the others just like that center door from the china cabinet. And it shows more tones of pink from the cherry blossoms too.
