inspired card.

After seeing the new stamp set Nicole previewed today for Paper Trey Ink. I decided to break out an old Stampin' Up set that has a similar feel. To be honest this isn't really my style (the image), but I do love to color. I wish there were more color friendly stamps that feel into my kind of stamps (whatever those are, right?). I was able to pair the image with some Cosmo Cricket Ever After Elements to give it a nice feel. What do you think?
Stamps: Inkadinkado Brenda Walton, A Flower for All Season (SU)
Paper: Kraft (SU)
Marker: Sage Shadow and Copics
Ticket: Jennie Bowlin
Button: PTI White and Cream

Around my image I wanted to do an aged look. I used vintage cream first and then aged photo from ranger. I think it gave a nice look.

Also, for any of you that made your own photo tent that I posted about earlier (see here). I purchased two utility lights at a yard sale and finally got new bulbs. Let me tell you it made a huge difference. Please refer to yesterday's post and compare to the pictures above. You'll get the idea.

Lastly, make sure you check back this weekend. Chase and I have a big - BIG project in the making. I'll be posting pretty frequently!

Very cute Courtney! Love all the different elements you used! Great coloring job! What did you do to get the shadow look around the pot and flowers? Or are my eyes just bad? ha...

Cute! I like the inking around the image. I haven't made a tent yet, I have just been using natural light and a natural light bulb in my lamp right now, but when the Winter days get here, I might need the tent! Your pictue looks great!
