Last month, Flourishes let the cat out of the bag and told you that once in a while we'd usher in what we called a Pinter-inspiration challenge. We're getting on the Pinterest bandwagon and even have a Flourishes page HERE showing not only all of our sets but cards and techniques that inspire us! So, today's Pinter-inspiration is one inspired by the website Design Seeds. Here's a peek at what they do!!!
They take an image and then, produce a color palette taken from the gorgeous photo! You'll have to check out their website HERE for their literal daily inspiration! I could literally spend hours on their site!
For my card, I used the Zinnias set...I know, I know, I've used this set several times lately. I'll put it away...I promise. ;-) The sentiment is from the April Showers set. Here are the Copic markers I used on this one:
The layout is this week's Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge. That pretty die-cut is Flourishes Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die. I airbrushed the background of the die with my Copic Air Brush System. I added a pretty white crocheted doily, Celery Green Ruffled Edge Sheer Ribbon, pale lavender satin ribbon, and three Iced Gem Candi's, which I adhered with Candi Fix foam pads. The pretty patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Indie Bloom paper pad.
HOW TO PLAY! So, do you want a chance to win Flourishes entire March Release? All you need to do is be inspired by the color palette above and use it in a creation! Once you are done, just link up here using the inlinkz widget and you will be in the running. You have until Friday, March 16th at 5PM EST to enter! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don't -- play along anyway -- you would win some! The winner will receive all three sets and our new Tailor-made die that will be unveiled in our newest release starting NEXT WEDNESDAY! If you upload to Splitcoast stampers, don't forget to use the keyword MAR12PIN! Good Luck!
For more inspiration, be sure to hop on over to the rest of the design team blogs to see what fun they whipped up using these gorgeous shades of green and purple!
