Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #24 - An Inspiration Challenge

This fortnight's challenge over on Inspiring Inkin' Challenges (my SU team) is an inspiration one using this picture:

This bag is great for inspiration but at the whopping price of £3430, it's just a tad too much out of my budget! Check it out here on net-a-porter!

The side twist to use make your own patterened paper - no pre-printed papers are allowed at all! There are so many gorgeous background stamps, wheel stamps and smaller stamps in a set that sometimes get looked over, that this is the ideal chance to use them!

Here's my offering! I made my own glittery DSP using the starburst type stamp from Good Friend then covering it with heat n' stick powder, before adding a sprinkling of Dazzlin' Diamonds - looks fab doesn't it?! I used the sketch from Just Us Girls Challenge #27 for the layout as well.


Stamps: Good Friend, Tiny Tags

Paper: Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Night of Navy, Whisper White

Inks: Bashful Blue, Ballet Blue, Night of Navy

Accessories: Heat 'n' Stick Powder, Dazzlin Diamonds, Night of Navy grosgrain ribbon, Scallop Edge Punch

So why not have a go at creating a card using this picture for your inspiration. Don't forget to leave a link over on Inspiring Inkin' Challenges as well.
