Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge #3

Yep, still enjoying those challenges. I did another couple of Makeesha's yesterday, but I will take photos and post those tomorrow - they have both missed the deadline, as I have with the Kwerner Challenge this week, but I plan to give that a go too - it's been a busy week, including being away at Waiterere Beach for a few days which was lovely, lots of sunshine and lots of relaxing!

Anyway, on to the challenge - I had a look at this in the morning, then went off on my bike to do my deliveries for a few hours so had some time to think about it! This is pretty much what I envisioned, which is always a bonus. The brown is supposed to look like a window with the flowers sitting on the window sill, I'm not sure I totally captured that idea.

The flowerpots are the pot of the Bloomin' Beautiful stampset, I used my black marker to colour the part of the stamp I wanted, and then used the journaling end to draw in the top of the pots ... I've never claimed to be a great drawer, so don't look too close ;) I then used old faithful Petal Prints for the flowers, I stamped them with Stazon on to Confetti White card and then watercoloured them in Real Red, Blue Bayou and Sage Shadow, trying to capture the colours from the Inspiration picture. I backed the window with Summer Sun card which hopefully captured the little bit of brightness peeking through at the back of the Inspiration picture.

I'm pretty pleased with this one - it took a couple of hours, so not one I'd want to make multiples of or use for my Stamp a Stack classes! But lots of fun :)

Check back tomorrow for the card I made using both Makeesha's colour challenge and sketch challenge!

Oh, and you can find Makeesha's blog here - it is one of my favourites, I love her Make it Monday, and the way she comes up with a few versions of each idea.
