My first inspiration challange. I checked out the rugs at LL Bean's web site & chose this one. I just picked up my Baroque Moftif stamps & thought they would be perfect for this challange. Four attempts latter Here is my take on the challange. Lots of measuring - this card is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I have used flowers from boroque motifs & Studio G clear stamps & the little swirl is from studio G. Images stamped in old olive, bashful blue & not quite navy. I have used brown pencil crayon on the stems. I have also used a speckled back ground stamp from itty bitty backgrounds, stamped lightly in chocolate chip & old olive. The large baroque motif flowers are up on dimensionals & copper brads in the centers, part of flower coloured in bashful blue. I picked the thank-you sentiment for the center of the card. I cut strips from not quite navy & chocolate chip for the ribbon. I pierced holes in the chocolate chip ribbon strips. Dotted the blue ribbon with a white gel pen. It is also up a dimensional. The rug image is matted with bashful blue & close to cocoa.
