ihp Inspiration Challenge

Hello, peeps! Today, the i {heart} papers design team has an inspiration challenge for you!

Isn't this posy lovely?!! If you can play along, we would ask that you use code ihp0812 when you upload to your online gallery so we can find it and leave some words of blessing for you.

Here's the project I was did, inspired from this photo. The watermelon crochet trim is from May Arts and is a favourite of mine. That perfect little white bow is tied curtesy of my bow easy tool.

It's an abstract posey in Seurat pointillism technique. I used a 3/8" and 1/2" curcle punches cutting out small circles from my Carefree paper by Authentique. Next, I used distress ink markers by Ranger to draw circles between the paper circles. I used pastel raspberry, gold and platinum liquid pearls for the balance of the dots.

I stamped Embrace Happiness from Tree-Mendous by Technique Tuesday using Black Tuxedo Memento ink.

We invite you to hop along and visit with the rest of the design team;
Have a wonderful, inspired day!

LOVE it! What a great idea. Although I will admit when I studied pointillism in school mine never came out quite this good looking. LOL
