Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #14

Another Friday is here - hope you've all had a lovely week.  I have been busy packing, we leave today for a holiday with our boys.  So hopefully this scheduled post is coming to you!
It's time for another fabulous Inspiration Challenge and Makeesha has picked out this gorgeous bedding to help you get inspired.  It looks so beachy and summery, don't you think!


Here's my creation:

I've used the quilt cover has my inspiration and I'm sure that somewhere in the house, there will be a row beach thongs!
So I've started with a base card in Whisper White, then layered various cardstocks in Bashful Blue, Taken with Teal, Certain Celery and Basic Grey, to imitate the quilt cover pattern.  I've used the Sprinkles stamp set on the Teal and Blue strips.
For the main image, I've used Just Beachy, and picked out the beach thongs.  I've inked up in Stazon Black, stamped onto some watercolour paper and then used the Aqua painter and ink pads to colour them in.  I've added a small rhinestone to the pair in the middle.
Then I've added some wide Celery ribbon, tied in a knot.  The sentiment has been stamped in Teal and I've used the Window punch and a small rhinestone to complete it.

If you would love to join in with the challenge, pop over to Makeesha's website to get all the details and also see her fabulous creation.

I had to remind myself that for you guys, sandals make sense right now! hahaha! We've just had our very first snow yesterday and today everything is icy and slippery, so the winter boots just came out!

Love the stripes you created for your background :)
