Monday's mean the CAS challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. Today was an inspiration challenge, we were to use these pillows as our inspiration choices. I chose the Blue Floral Embroidered Pillows as my inspiration piece - these links will open in new pages.
This was a double challenge for me - the other challenge being to use a colour I don't really like - SU! Ballet Blue - but I think it turned out OK with the chocolate, I'm still not really sold on it though!
The card measures just a tad under 5" square. All stamping was done in Brilliance Pearlescent Chocolate ink which gives a subtle pearly shimmer. The flower is from my new fave SU! Petal Pizzazz set. I wanted to mimic the flower in the centre of the top pillow so I used punched Choc Chip 3/4" circles to form the scallop shape. The flower piece is popped up and I added a Candy Dot to the flower centre. The sentiment piece was made using Spellbinders Label Trio dies. I finished off by adding 2 rows of piercing using my Tim Holtz ruler.
