What a great inspiration challenge today! I love all the color and pattern but was really taken with the Barcelona Journal. The bold colors of the flowers against the stark black and white is one of my favorite color combos.
I stamped the fancy schmancy curved design (Inque) w/ coal ink onto white c/s. Then I stamped the hummer/hibiscus (also now Inque, but formerly Anita's) and the flower corner (ditto) on separate white c/s and colored w/ markers and a water brush. I stamped these images twice so I could pop up the hummer and a couple of the petals as well as a few of the lower flowers and layer them on top.
After coloring, I cut out, put some of the images on foam tape and attached to my bg. I edged the bg w/ a green marker then attached to the pink layer then a white card. Pretty easy, just a lot of coloring and cutting, but I like doing that, lol.
Thanks so much for looking and please visit my blog: The Write Stuff for close ups and more info.
