Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #15

It's Friday and challenge time AGAIN.  This week you can be inspired by this picture from Makeesha.  Don't these cushions look very modern and nice.

Here's what I've created for the challenge:

I have kept it rather simple, seeing as there was not alot of colour in the picture.
I have a base card in Basic Grey, then added a layer of Basic Black and then some white cardstock.  On this piece I've made up a background using the Pocket Silhouette stamp set.  I've used the grey and black ink, 'stamping off' some colour as I went long to create depth of field.  Before stamping onto the cardstock, I've spritzed the stamp with water; when when it's stamped onto the cardstock, there is a watercolour effect.
I've used a frame image from some clear stamps that I have.  I've used Stazon black for this, then added a sentiment from Best Yet to the centre of the frame.  Then I've cut it out and added to the card.
To finish off the card, I've added some black stitched ribbon.
There's something about using black on a card - it gives some elegance to the feel of it, don't you think!

So if you like this inspiration picture this week, pop on over to Makeesha's website to see all the details of how you can join in the fun.  She will inspire you further, with her creations and then be sure to check out the Design Team contributions as well.
