Inspiration Challenge Thursday!!!!

Another week just few by and we're here for another Thursday Inspiration Challenge! I want to thank those who participated in the Diva Inspiration Challenges in September! The winner of the free stamp set will announced in a later post, so stay tuned.......
In the mean time, you can get your thoughts stirring on this week's Golden Poppies Canvas Art inspiration picture. I love the deep colors and sketch possibilities. Most definitely the Rich Regals will be pulled out for this challenge!

I challenged myself on this one! I had the idea down pretty fast, but it's that finishing touch that did me in. I sponged the background, flowers, and accents with Bravo Burgundy ink to help add some depth. When I was done, I felt like it was too plain so I asked the question "What else can I add?". I first added the crystal effects then some ribbon and finally some brads. I still am a little unsure of what else to add without overdoing it, but this is how it'll stay for now.

Stamps: Flower Fancy, Absolutely Fabulous, Canvas
Paper: Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke, Bordering Blue, So Saffron
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Sponge, Grosgrain Ribbon, Oval and Large Oval Punch, Crystal Effects, Dimensionals
