Thank you!

So this card is inspired by the Etsy Inspired Challenge. This week they are spotlighting Linkel Designs. I kind of want everything from this store! Wow!! Here are the two jewelry pieces I was inspired by:

I have had this Hero Arts Cling stamp for a while, and some how I hadn’t used it yet. The ring on the right reminded me of it and inspired me to make the flowers 3D. First, though, I have to talk about my faux Guide Lines II. I was reminded by the medallion on the left that I had been tempted to buy it. Then, I thought, “how can I recreate that look?” I saw my Amy Butler Lotus Floral stamps and this beautiful medallion image and created a background with it! I love you PTI, but this totally works! Let me know if you try something like this. It’s super fun!

I made this flower by coloring it with Distress Inks ala Jennifer McGuire. It was really fun!
Another Distressed flower! Also, another look at my versamark on kraft faux giant Guide Lines.
I found out something else while making this card. You can color the clear rhinestones that PTI sells with Copics! Custom gems! Yay!!! Thanks for the inspiration, Etsy Inspired and Linkel Designs!
