Hi Everyone! Hope everyone’s weekend is going well, I am now 6 days away from holidays and cannot come quick enough.
So today I wanted to pay tribute to a wonderful, creative, inspiring and so talented lady, Jill Foster, this week I had the honour of being featured on her amazing blog called Inspired By, and if you have never visited her blog, it has to be a must on you list of things to do. She WOW’S! me everytime she creates, each week she picks another creative person using there cards she creates her own interpretation of them, and I have to say her takes on my cards this week were awesome, so thank you Jill for the wonderful week!
To honour Jill, I wanted to show case the cards that were created from mine and also wanted to create a card of my own that I was inspired by Jill, so without further ado here are the cards:
All this yummy purple goodness, just look at that beautiful flower!
The 3 bold flowers together just pop’s beautifully against the white!
Jill amazes me with how she can turn a beautiful flower into the most gorgeous colours and turn it into a stunning card.
What can I say but Gorgeous!
The colouring on this sensational card is truly stunning, not only does Jill know how to colour with Distress Ink she definitely know how to use those Copics!
Knowing how Jill loves butterflies I though that it would be fitting to add one to the card that I was inspired to make by Jill, so to say a big thank you to you Jill I have created this card:
I love the way uses the Distress Inks, it truly is awe inspiring and the little touches that she adds to her cards really pulls it together to form the most beautiful and incredible creation.
Here is my take on her card:
I used Kraft card stock to form a card and using the Hero Arts, Flourish Background stamp inked with Colorbox Ink, Frost White I stamped the entire front of the card. Next, taking white card stock I inked the entire card stock with Ranger, Distress Ink, Scattered Straw and stamped the grass from the Hero Arts, Earth Flowers stamp set, backing it onto more white card stock. I then stamped a butterfly from the Hero Arts, Antique Engravings onto more white card stock and coloured the butterfly in with my Copics, once coloured in I cut the image out. Using yet again more white card stock I inked up a section using some Ranger, Distress Ink, Walnut Stain and tore it to give it more texture. Once I was happy with all the elements of the card I adhered everything onto the front of the card and lastly, adding a sentiment from the Hero Arts, All Occasion Messages stamp set.
Here is another view of the card:
A truly wonderful and talented person to be inspired by, thank you Jill for the amazing week!
I hope you all enjoy viewing these cards today and may it inspire you to create a project inspired by another.
