ASM - Photo inspiration ....

... Good evening!  Well, we're in November, our clocks went back at the weekend, so the evenings are dark now - a real sign of winter.  But I'm here to tell you about this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week we have an inspiration photo - here's my take:

Tulip Umbrella - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps:  Stamp Art Designs Digi - Tulip Umbrella; Lil Inkers - Darling Diamonds
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Real Red
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Squares #5
Accessories: Neenah Solar White Card; SU Card - Real Red; Gold Mirri Card; Copic Markers; Wink of Stella - Clear; Sequins


I've taken the colours from the photo as my inspiration.  I used Real Red to make the card base.  The image was printed on Neenah Solar White (which I got when I did the Copic colouring class) and coloured with Copics!!  I cut it out with a die and layered it onto some gold mirri card.  I added some sparkle to the flowers with my clear Wink of Stella brush, and finished the front with some sequins.  I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card.  On the inside I cut a panel of white card and added a simple greeting.
