July Inspirational Challenge

Do you feel inspired? Well there is always lots of inspiration to be found at Lily Pad Cards and today there is another Inspirational Challenge up.  Come and take a look at how the DT was inspired by other cardmakers to make their creations & join the fun challenge ;)

I was inspired by Janet's (Swanlady21) lovely card here. I particularly like the white stamped panel and the ribbon running below. Such a great design which can be used in many ways.

Here is my take...

I used the lovely flower from the Hero Arts Lotus Leaves set to stamp a subtle background in white on kraft and used the same flower stamped with pool shadow ink on white cardstock. The pool panel on which I stamped the sentiment is colored in with pool shadow ink using an ink blending tool.

I really rarely use black ribbon on my cards ... but somehow this seems to work okay on this card ;)

Stamps: CL542 Lotus Leaves, CL493 Live Life.
Papers: Bazzill Kraft & coconut swirl, Bo Bunny 
Inks: Memories White/Black dye ink, Hero Arts Pool Shadow ink
Other: May arts silk ribbon, Doddlebug button, twine.
