It's true that inspirations are everywhere and these days, we can always find inspiration in the Great Outdoor. For the June Inspiration Challenge, I chose a garden photo that my husband John took while visiting in Iceland last summer. To start, I started stamped a bunch of flowers from " Delicate Clusters Stamp & Die Bundle". For the yellow flowers , I used Sunray, Milk Chocolate and a touch of Enchanted Gold Pigment. For the dark red flowers , I selected Pink Diamond and Grapevine. Finally for the green flowers, I chose Forest Glades and Moss.  

 What better ways to arrange them? The Versatile Vase, of course! I chose the smallest vase image and stamped it over the "A Walk in the Woods". To make the entire design cohesive, I again reached for Enchanted Gold Pigment

I also cut a small slit in the vase, trimmed the stems and arranged the flowers. For the background, I used part of the new awesome Ombre Stripes Stencil. I then applied Moss Crisp Dye Ink in the acrylic block and mixed it with Embossing Paste.

For the embellishment, I added glitter, Enamel Dots and Antique Gold Metallic Ink Spray (splatter).

You made me add that stencil to my wishlist, Virginia--lovely card! Can't wait to come up with something for this month's challenge using your color combo! said...

Love everything about this! The woodgrain on the vase and the gold splatters is such beautiful touches to rich colors of the card!

The textured stripes across the bottom - LOVE, LOVE that, Virginia!! Love the vase and those pretty flowers too. Never would have put these colors together but you rocked them!!!!

The Delicate Clusters set is such a pretty set! I love how you did the stripes in green embossing paste, adds so much texture. I will also have to remember the slit idea for adding flowers to the vase as it makes the bouquet look so real in yiur pretty vase.
