Get Inspired - Pretty Pink Peonies Week 2

Hi Everyone, happy Saturday!  Its my turn to contribute for our Get Inspired column over at MFP Speedy TV!

Today I am using a lovely photo provided by MariLynn last week:

 So pretty!  Here is what I came up with:

I enjoyed making this card, and I used a Mark's Finest Papers' set called Lotus Blossoms.  Its such a pretty set.

I chose two patterns from a 6x6 patterned paper book then decided on a kraft base.  I trimmed the pieces, inked and distressed the edges, then stamped and embossed my images on a white panel.  I water coloured the image, when I did this I thought the colour I chose was brighter than it turned out but I like how it goes with the colours in the paper.  I adhered the main panel to the card with foam tape, added twine, foam taped the image panel, and added some stick pins and self adhesive pearls.  For the inside I used leftovers from the same patterned papers and a pretty sentiment from the stamp set.    

What do you think, are you feeling inspired? If you are we'd love it if you leave a link in the comments! :)

As I mentioned before, this post is part of the  Get Inspired page at MFP Speedy TV .   If you are not a member of MFP Speedy TV, its a free social networking site focused on stamping and cardmaking with MFP stamps.  In additon to our column you will find lots of inspiration, including other informative columns on a daily basis, so why not click over and see what you are missing!

So thats it for me this week! Next week I will have some new inspiration for you, see you then! :)
