I'm jittery with excitement in stepping on the stage as a guest designer for Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge~Fluff! Talk about an honour to join this amazing group of talented performers!
The inspiration photo is pure delight: a array of wonderfully patterned pillows in a variety of colours! Blues, greens, corals, yellows...stripes, diagonals, florals, diamonds...A plethora of choices for sparking ideas!
The photo nudged me into sorting through some of my old treasures - from Clearly Besotted, to be precise - to find stamps that resonated with the designs that caught my eye.
My first card, drawing inspiration from the navy/teal/grey diamond-ish shapes on the largest pillow, features one of several stamps from the (now discontinued) Flower Blocks set. I inked them in Memento light blue, navy and teal, added a trio of shiny bling bits and thank you's...Done!
My second card saw a re-emergence of another CB set, Sunburst My intent was to reflect the peach/coral colour and inset geometric patterns of the top right pillow, but in circle form. I used one ink - Altenew Peach Parfait - adding layers to darken the impression in certain sections. The ivory pearls are a nod to the pillow's creamy background. Hopefully, my connection is kinda-sorta evident...
Thank you, Curtain Call gals, for the chance to play a role in this challenge! A couple more cards are in the wings, awaiting their turn to join the show...
