City Sunset

I’m getting my card in just under the wire. I haven’t had a lot of time to stamp, but I *love* the inspiration photo over at For Your Inspiration. I had so many ideas, but only time to make one card.

I’ve decided it is time to make an ink index though – I usually chose my colors by picking out paper, but so often they just don’t match well enough. I ended up changing all my ink choices, lol.

Anyway, this is an old background from StampinUp. I inked sections with different shades of purple. There is a splash of turquoise in the inspiration photo and I pulled that into my project with the ribbon. I also added rhinestones to the bottom row of flowers (though you can’t see them in my photo) – that is to mimic the lights in the buildings.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Stamps: Happiness (SU);
Colors: Lavender Moon ink, Plum Pudding ink (PTI); White paper, Eggplant Envy ink, Elegant Eggplant paper (SU);
Other: Hawaiian Shores ribbon (PTI); Rhinestones (Hero Arts);
