Beate's Inspiration Challenge #10

Happy Thursday!

Here's a card I made for this week's inspiration challenge on Beate's blog. The inspiration piece was a print you can purchase at Cold Water Creek. I've been wanting to try sponging with embossing and this challenge was perfect for this technique.

I used the color combination of Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss and Barely Banana, taken from the inspiration print. The stamps are from Heartfelt Thanks. I embossed the flowers with White EP and then sponged on the colors all around the flowers. The layers of cardstock have all been directly inked with the ink pad to create a background. I tied a piece of white organdy ribbon and hemp twine around the image piece for the final touches.

Thanks for looking, happy stamping!! :)
