WWC33 Watercooler Wednesday Inspiration Challenge

My turn to host a challenge. I chose this beautiful purple bedroom photo for the artists:

With inspiration challenges you may chose any elements to create your project: colours, sketches, shapes, or even just how it makes you feel.

For my card I focused on the mannequin wearing the t-shirt. I used the colours and positioning of elements. I added versamark and smoky slate to the flower then stamped it on thick whisper white paper. Used some clear embossing powder and heat set it. I used the aquapainter to pick up pink pirouette and elegant eggplant reinker from an acrylic block to colour the flower. Next I cut out the flower with scissors before mounting it to the card. 

On the actual t-shirt there are two flowers on the right side. I decided to use the two butterfly thinlits turned sideways to represent them. The splash of green in the bottle on the dresser is represented by the small old olive branch from the bird builder punch. The sentiments was stamped then punched out with the wing portion of the bird builder punch.

stamps: blended bloom, paper pumpkin August 2015 (sentiment)
ink: pink pirouette, smoky slate, elegant eggplant, versamark
paper: whisper white thick, whisper white, elegant eggplant, pink pirouette, smoky slate, old olive
other: stylish stripes e.f., butterflies thinlits, bold butterfly framelits dies, bird builder punch, aquapainter, clear embossing powder, 5/8" white organza ribbon

If you have some time you can hop over to the Watercooler Wednesday challenge site and view what all the other artists created. They will be very different since everyone sees different elements they wish to use in this wonderfully purple inspiration photo. It would be terrific if you decided to link your own photo to our page. There are instructions on the challenge site explaining how to enter.

Hope you have a marvelous day!

  1. Thanks for the great inspiration challenge Bev. This certainly is a beautiful bedroom with lots of things to look at. I like that you chose the mannequin in the far right corner and interpreted the detail of the tshirt so well. Beautifully done. Thanks for your great description of how it came together.
