This is another card made for Inspiration Challenge IC146. For this challenge we were referred to Mondo Dishes by Rosanna, Inc., a line of dishware and accessories designed by Rosanna Bowles. What a wonderful choice for inspiration! I found several collections I would love to have in my home, never mind my card collection, and I chose several to make cards with today. This card was inspired by the “King’s Road” collection.
For this card, I took a lighthearted approach with the theme of “royalty” and the “king” and played on the crowd in the “King’s Road” design. I used Color Box’s copper (which to my eye is more antique brass than coppery) to stamp a frog prince and a sand castle, which I mounted against a backdrop of gold flourishes and leaf fronds. I embellished the corners with hand cut frames that I brushed with the same copper ink and attached with antique gold brads. As a finishing touch, I stamped and clear embossed the message “Dreams really do come true.”
