Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge #11

I find these 'inspiration' challenges the most fun and the most challenging; fun because it's alway great to see what you can come up with from a picture and challenging because it can be tricky to find just the right stamp set that goes well with the inspiration. This weeks inspiration was def. more on the difficult side. Here is the picture we had to work with:
I love the look of this kitchen: clean and simple. So that's how I created my card! I've gone with the colours, Basic Grey, Going Grey, Whisper White and a touch of Bashful Blue. I think those bowls have a touch of blue in them. With the design of my card, I went with the panels of the cupboard and added the cake image as the centre piece. I went back a few years and used this sweet stamp set which I just love and won't part with: Sweet of You. I also used the flourish image from Friends 24-7 for the panels.
The cake image has been stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured in with the aqua painter and ink pads. I've also added some crystal effects to the image as a glass cover. Then I've used some blue tafetta ribbon to finish off, as well as some pretty half pearls.

So that was my take on the challenge. Pop onto Makeesha's website to check out all the other fabulous creations and be inspired!

Well you definately put lots of thought into your card Chantelle and it looks lovely for it. You have combined those 2 stamp sets well.
