Feeling inspired...

Hullo girls, it's inspiration time! The cards that I'd like to share with you today, were all inspired by something, and I hope they also will inspire you towards creating something special today!

First and foremost, let me introduce you to the newest Color Dare challenge: CD56 - Tempting Rich Plums! I don't know about you, but to me this gorgeous dress is indeed very tempting!I wish I had it hanging in my wardrobe...

If you feel like playing along with these lovely colours, you're just one click away from doing so!
Click me!
Here's how I utilized them on my DT sample:
(I added an additional shade of violet - the ribbon)

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; paper: Kaisercraft; stamps: Stampin' Up! Bloomin' With Beauty, Happy Harmony; ink: StazOn Jet Black, ColorBox Wisteria; watercolour pencils: Belgrave; blender pen; pearls: Kaisercraft

Now, I'd like to share with you the sample that I made for the round two of Spring DT Search on SCS. Since it's all Olympic Games style, the task that we've been given is to make a card that has one of the Olympic Sports with a slope, as an inspiration.
It was indeed a challenge for me, for I couldn't find anything suitable in my stash, and thus I scavenged the internet for the DP and image. This cute turtle is taken from the colouring page. It was paper pieced and watercoloured. The cloudy sky was a freebie vector image. I added some texture with my Cuttlebug, some sparkle on the lettering, and voila! Here it is:

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; paper: digital printables; image: colouring page; watercolour pencils: Belgrave; blender pen; chipboard letters: Fynmark; Cuttlebug & Textile embossing folder

Here's one more card, and I made it this morning. This time an inspiration comes from the current Tuesday Trigger:

I decided that I take the image quite seriously. LOL
I created the lamp from various scraps of cardstock & paper hanging around - got to love it when they still come handy! I added some sponging to the lamp base, which gave it some nice dimension.

Supplies: cardstock: Quill, DCWV; paper: digital printable; ink: Versa Color Sky Gray, StazOn Jet Black; sentiment stamp: Flourishes; Fiskars border punch; ribbon, string: stash

I hope you like today's batch - I'll see you soon!
