Diva Inspiration Challenge #1


I am excited to post our very first Diva Inspiration Challenge!! Every Thursday a new Inspiration Challenge will be shown. I have a team of Bev, Tandra, Charmaine, and myself who will share our inspired creations with you every week! This week's inspiration came from an article written by michsineath for Mobile Technology. I love the bright colors of the balloons against the pretty blue sky! When I saw this, the colors of the Bold Brights family came to mind immediately.


For my creation, I ran with the balloons against the clear blue sky theme. I passed the background through the CuttleBug using the D'vine Swirl embossing folder that I dabbed with Whisper White Craft Ink before cranking it through the machine. I like how it created the subtle little clouds in the background.

Stamps: Bitty Birthday, Celebrate Everything
Paper: Whisper White, Yoyo Yellow, Real Red, Only Orange, Ballet Blue
Ink: Ballet Blue, Basic Black, Whisper White Craft
Accessories: White Gel Pen, Silver Cord, Dimensionals, Stampin' Write Markers - Real Red, Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow, Glorious Green, Ballet Blue, CuttleBug


Bev took off with the balloons as she used the colors and balloons as a border for a scrapbook page. She added highlights on the balloons with a white gel pen.

Stamps: None
Paper: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Yoyo Yellow, Only Orange, Glorious Green

Ink: None

Tandra made a beautiful explosion of flowers with her creation! She even busted out the BRIGHT new In-Colors!
