"Inspired By" is Back!!

My favourite challenges are back after a much needed summer break - yay!  Inspired by All the Little Things is one of those challenges and their first week back is a BAM!!!

The rules on how to play along are here....pretty dang simple so join in!

Here is the inspirational photo...just gorgeous in all of its beautiful bright colours!

I began by stamping some of the pretty images from CAS-ual Fridays' Pretty Posies on watercolour cardstock using Smokey Gray Versafine ink.  I use Versafine so I would be able to watercolour without fear of smearing everything all over the place.... blech.

Using my Gansai watercolour inks, I watercolored the panel with oranges, yellows and reds to match the inspirational photo, and then using my heat tool, I dried it thoroughly - completely - all the way!!

I then painted the background.  Now I wanted to have a messy look but I have so much trouble letting my inner OCD run wild - so therefore, the background is kind of a hodgepodge of messy and clean Lol, crazy.

I diecut the painted panel with YNS Stitched Rectangles and adhered it to a Harvest Gold cardstock background.  In turn, I adhered those to my Enchanted Evening card base.

I added a piece of vellum to the top and popped up a few more flowers and my sentiment - from the same stamp set - Pretty Posies!

I finished with some gorgeous Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins - just perfect!

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you find the time to play this week!!
