Inspired By All The Little Things #63

Hello friends.  Today I am playing along with the Inspired By All The Little Things challenge where this beautiful photo is our inspiration.

Don't you just LOVE those colors together and the soft background?!  These colors make me think Spring, but I'm in the mood for Fall, and just by using a much loved and older set from PTI, I think I achieved the Fall look.


I used Peekaboo Peach, Pool Party, & Crumb Cake inks along with Mum's The Word stamp set for my flowers on a piece of Rustic White cardstock, and also used the "Donna" technique, where I repeatedly stamped each flower moving the stamp just aa tine bit each time.  Here's a closer up view:


The "Donna" technique according to my SU! demonstrator was coined by Donna when she accidentally dropped her inked up stamp and tried to fix it by repeatedly stamping over the dropped image.  It gives the stamped image a very subtle shading and really is fun to do!  I also used an older SU! background stamp (En Francais) for the script on the side, and then stamped my sentiment from the Mum's The Word set on a Rustic White piece of cardstock and pop dotted it.  A small twine bow on the sentiment banner finished off my card.

There's still lots of time to play along with this challenge and some GORGEOUS inspiration from the DT, so check it out and play along right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!

  4. Well, now, you've taught me something new, Marcia! Thank you! I've never heard of the "Donna" technique. It does add a lot of depth! Your design using the photo is really flawless as far as I can see, right down to that sweet twine bow on the sediment banner! Genius!! (And thank you for playing at Inspired!) Hugs, Darnell
