GDT at Inkspirational

Today there's a new challenge at Inkspirational and I am delighted that I have been asked to be the guest designer. The challenge is a photo inspiration, and this is the fab photo:


I've gone with the chocolate and cream colour scheme, using a DP from a V&A museum pad for the background, to represent the trailing floral garlands, with the London stamp from Tim Holtz's Cityscapes set. I was delighted to find out recently that Crafty Ribbons have a ribbon that uses the same images, perfect to use with these stamps!

I stamped the image and sentiment onto card that is actually some recycled packaging. It must have a coating of some kind as even after several hours the ink was still wet, so I had to emboss it, which hadn't been part of the master plan!
