It’s photo inspiration week at Just Us Girls. The inspiration is a lovely wooden tub with purple flowers. I used the wooden tub from Beyond Baskets by Gina K Designs. The flowers are from Botanical Medallions and Banners by JustRite colored with Prismas – Violet and Kelly Green. I colored the flowers lightly, then went over the inner section of each petal again to shade a bit, then blended with the blending pencil. Then I fussy cut them. I couldn’t decide what color to make the centers so ended up using some bling from my stash. I used a die from the Crochet Lace set by Tim Holtz and lightly sponged with Antique Linen Distress Oxide. I die cut a tiny rectangle then stamped the sentiment from Mini Tag Sentiments by Divinity Designs. For the “stick” to hold the sentiment in the flowers I used the stem from the wheat stalk from the Autumn Bouquet Fancy Die set by Hero Arts – which is one of my new favorite dies. I found the yellow gingham piece that I had die cut for a previous project and never used – it made a perfect background.
