Creative Inspirations # 3 - Scallops



Good morning folks!

Scallops to you! No, I'm not being rude.......... I'm just telling you about the theme for Week Three over at Creative Inspirations, lol! Bet you want to join us now don't you? Especially all those of you who have scalloped cards, doily punches and Nesties. The girls have come up with some beautiful creations for our third week and I hope you can hop over for a peek.

I used the white scalloped card for this project and doodled my own silhouette flowers onto the design paper. I couldn't resist taking a piccie of the card in amongst my Camelia bush as the blooms are starting to fade a bit now and it'll soon be back to just green again.




Materials:
Image - Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss
Sentiment - Studio G
Papers - Kay & Co
Punch - Martha Stewart Embossing ZigZag
Colouring - ProMarkers
Embellishments - Ribbon from my stash
Accents - Black Fineliner for Doodling

This comes together so well. I love something delicate like a scallop to offset the boldness of olive and black, totally nailed this challenge!! I love how you've played up the paper with great doodling. This is just beautiful!!
