My card was inspired by this brooch from the Desired Things shop on Etsy.
She has sooo many gorgeous pieces in her shop, it was really difficult choosing just one to use as inspiration! But I really loved the background on this one, with the stripes, glitter and script text. Although I went with purple instead of silver (you know I can't resist purple!), I had a TON of fun recreating the background!
It was created with Claudine Hellmuth's yummy Studio Paints, some Stickles, and the La Lettre stamp from Hero Arts.
To pull it all together, I thought the latest challenge from Tiff's Sketchy Sunday was perfect!!
I created the silver flower "medallion" by building up several layer of embossing powder, then dipping the stamp into it while the EP was still hot. It didn't come out as perfectly as I would have liked - I got some bubbles. Meh.
I loved how the brooch has silver stars on the ribbon, so I punched some hearts out of the scrap embossed piece and glued them onto the tulle.
Now make sure and head on over to the Etsy Inspired Challenge blog and check out the full details - there are prizes to be had! WOOHOO!! And also visit the rest of the wonderful EIC team:
