Inspired Squared

Hello.  Welcome.  A special hello and hug to my new followers.  Thanks for joining our happy little band.  Have you been over to the PaperArtsy blog this week?  It's 3UP week and the punters are strutting their stuff.  Me included!!  Here's my take on one of Shirley's cards from Night 1

I've only got one set of Lin Brown stamps, ELB04, and these are solid so I decided to do a bit of stamp kissing using a stamp from Darcy's EDY06.  I started by applying white paint to my black card.  Shirley used pigment ink but I wasn't getting a good result.  Maybe wrong ink, or paper?  Maybe wrong credit card bwahahahahahahhahaha.  Sorry, obviously too much sun LOL.  



I wasn't totally happy with the flower but I had stamped off the Darcy stamp on a piece of white card between kisses so I decided to try again with the open flower from SIEN10F and the sentiment from SIDD5.  I've used a button in the center of both flowers. 


Really like these.  Thanks for the inspiration Shirley and to the other brave 3UPers.  Hugs
