Inkspired by Jen (cobrielle)

About a week ago, my friend Jen was chatting on SCS and suggested that a friend use her layout and make a card. Well, naturally being the nosy person I am, I just had to look and see what layout she was showing and I decided I really liked it and thought it would be fun to try. SO, I finally got to trying it today. I created a card using colors inspired by the American Crafts rub ons that I bought a couple weeks ago. They are totally not typical and somewhat bright, and at first I found them pretty ugly, but they grow on you. The colors are: Cameo coral, tempting turquoise, chocolate chip, real red, and green galore. The background circles were created by using the circle rub ons (chocolate chip colored). Then I took my white gelly roll pen and added my own dots on the inside and outside of the circles. Next I layered the brown strip together and pierced and faux sewed it. I used the white gelly roll pen here again to make the stitches. The paisley was stamped on whisper white in all of the above mentioned colors to create the "mess" of paisley. I layered it on green galore to make it pop. Then finally, I added the ribbon (from Hobby Lobby) on. It is sheer brown with white polka dots and I thought it matched perfectly. All in all, despite how bright it is, I am satisfied with how this turned out. What do you think?

I like it! I love the mess of paisley, how they are layered randomly instead of individually spread out (which is good too). I love how the ribbon coordinates w/the chocolate circles and the white dots you added!

I think it is adorable. I love the extra steps you take to give a card added punch. Like the dots and the faux sewing.

I love how you overlapped all the paisley on the cards! I am going to try it out:) TFS

Wow, you did a great job! I like the paisley layers as well as the added dots, (looks like a lot of extra work!) Love it, Amanda!
