I saw these buttons for today's Inspiration challenge and used the graded colour palette from them for my inspiration. The buttons helped me stray a little from the palette - in a good way *grin*. I tried the pumpkin alone on the background, and it was quite harsh for the look I wanted. I almost sponged it to soften the edges, but I wanted a more elegant feel. It's been awhile since I used Stella Ruby paper from Basic Grey, but it was so perfect for this colour palette that I just couldn't resist.
My sentiment is from, 'Mother Teresa' by Our Daily Bread Designs. I stamped the water lily image in Tea Dye, and then stamped the sentiment over top in Walnut Stain. I just (finally) got my Fleur de Lis Pendant die, so I felt I must use it immediately!! *snort* It's a little tough to get the paper out of it, so if anyone has any tips for me, please let me know - I tore too many of the fleur de lis for my liking this go around. I tried twisting the die to pop it, I used a piercer a little, but the most tearing happened when I 'popped' the paper. I might have embossed it too much by using 3 paper shims, so I'll do that differently next time.
The rest of the creations by the OCC design team are lovely, so take a boo by using the links on my sidebar.
