Inspiration Photo

This week for the StampTV MIUM challenge, we had a photo for inspiration. I used the black and white flower pot, the flowers and the colours for inspiration. I am also entering this in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything Goes and the Mod Squad challenge - Fall Colors. For the Mod Squad challenge we get an extra entry if we have a stenciled background. Here is the photo we had for inspiration:

Here is the card that I came up with:

I started by stenciling the bottom half of the card front to look like the flower pot. I stamped the flower, masked it and added the leaves. I coloured these with some watercolour markers and added the ribbon at the edge of the stenciled area, before matting the card front and adhering it to a white card base. I stamped the sentiment, matted it and popped it up with some foam squares.

Supplies used:

                            Dark Chocolate, Fresh Asparagus ink
                            Sweet Mango cardstock
