Here is what I came up with for the Inspiration Challenge today from the Dry Goods site and I took my inspiration from the first photo of the blue blouse Stef posted.
I love playing with my markers and inks so to create this card I stamped the bkg. using Distress inks and water. For the hollyhocks, I coloured them with Memento markers then sprayed before stamping.
Hope you like it and thanks so much for looking.

I am just not sure why I keep having my subscription to your gallery cancelled.....I assumed (wrongly) that you had just taken a break from stamping......then I come here and find that I have missed MANY of your latest creations. I did ask for help at one point, but there didn't seem to be anything they could do.......that is my long story about why I have been MIA in your gallery.....
This is totally gorgeous.....with your signature vibrant blues
