Hawaiin Inspiration jac-inks Challenge 3

Today I have a couple of bright and summery samples I made as inspiration for the latest "jac-inks" Challenge #3

For some reason I just could not get away from flowers, but that's OK as I had loads of fun making up different flowers from shapes cut with the Big Shot.

My first sample is a scrap page that I envisaged as soon as I saw the inspiration photo. How I'm going to place the photos, I just don't quite know yet, but I'm sure something will just "happen" into my mind one day and it will all work out.

I used a flourish stencil to create the "waves" and all the other shapes are created with the Big Shot.

A little sponging on the layers of each flower helps to give them depth, and you'll notice Rhinestone brads in the centres of most of the flowers. 

The detail shot shows the variety of flowers that can be made, and the little butterflies help to spread dots of orange throughout the layout.

The next sample is a card. 

This time I've stamped and water-coloured the flowers, using my ink pads and an Aqua Painter. The background is created by pre-inking the dry embossing folder, and the leaves are cut with the Little Leaves  die.

Hope you like these samples and that you'll pop on over to "jac-inks" for some inspiration and to play along with the challenge. All the products used are from Stampin' Up!® and you are welcome to contact me for further information or to place orders. 

Until next time 

Stay Crafty
