Diva Inspiration Challenge #36

Another Thursday has sprung up on us yet again! March is almost over which means is should be going out like a lamb. To celebrate nicer weather, this week's inspiration picture should get you in the mood. I love the bright colors of this floral arrangement - doesn't it just make you feel happy?!?

This week, my upload to SCS didn't seem to be working so I am posting my sample here. The background was made by spreading Lovely Lilac ink with a brayer over the texturz plate and running it through the Big Shot. My background now matches the basket from the picture. :) i added glitter to the rim of the flower pot, outlined the flower and pot with Sahara Sand marker, popped the main image up on dimensionals, and paper pierced all around the image and banner at the bottom. The banner is also made to look like it's blowing in the breeze by adhering the flat end and the part right under "of" to the background, then curled the banner edge.

I had fun with this one - the Bold Brights are such happy colors!! :)

Stop me in my tracks. The idea with the brayer and texturz plate is off the charts. Fabulous finished card and take on the inspiration. I'm going to try your clever trick! Hugs, Mary
