A dose of inspiration!

Hi all and happy Friday! I have no idea where this week went! I seem to say that quite a bit lately. I think it's because we had kids in two camps on different ends of town at different times and then....swim lessons! :-) Ahhhhh, it's summer!

Today, Cindy Lawrence is the fine hostess over on the Flourishes blog for our Flourishes Focus and she ushered a challenge to the DT to find a spark for creativity in unexpected places. She emailed the DT this photo and said.. have fun!

Looking at the photo, I saw the damask print, elegant touches, silk, muted neutrals with a hint of pink. And, that's what I went for!

I know the color scheme isn't exact but after trying a bunch of different inks, I settled with this look -- it was still a muted neutral, but not with the taupe tone. I used the Fanciful Flourishes set with some Antique Linen Distress ink for my background on some ivory decorative paper. Pair that with the Spring Bouquet Set colored up with Copics - I used the Dahlia, Fields and Sweet Pea Copic Collections grouped by Flourishes. Add some pearls, some silk ribbon and voila! The sentiment is also from the Fanciful Flourishes set and was stamped, punched with an SU oval and popped up with foam tape. C'est fini!
You'll have to stop on over to say hi to the other Flourishes gals and see their take on this beautiful inspiration piece! Be sure to stop by the Flourishes Blog to see what Cindy cooked up!
