Inspired by Pocket Silhouettes

Today's challenge at Pals Paper Arts is an inspiration challenge. a beautiful summery picture of a hammock full of floral pillows. You can view Pals Paper Arts here.

My card is a 6x6" card scored at 3". I stamped images from Stampin'Up! Pocket Silhouette onto Regal Rose & Cameo Coral card stock and attached it to a 2x4.5" piece of Very Vanilla card stock. I stamped a third image right onto the Very Vanilla using my Stampin' Write Markers in Old Olive, Cameo Coral, Regal Rose, and Crushed Curry. I inked the whole image in Old Olive first and then took my Blender Pen and removed the ink from the blooms I wanted in different colors. A reverse use of the Blender Pens.

The flowers were punched out using the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack. I love this little set!! I roughed them up a bit and put a dab of Crystal Effects in the center of each.

My sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes. (I use this stamp every week, it's so versatile.) I also added one of the Bitty Buttons that goes with the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack atop of another punched flower. Some linen thread ties it all together.

I hope you enjoyed today's project! I cased parts of this project from some of the projects in the new 2010-2011 Idea Book & Catalog from Stampin'Up! that will be available July 1.
