Pals Inspiration Challenge # PPA68

This week the Pals Paper Art Design team has an Inspiration Photo to let your creative juices flow! As soon I saw this Inspiration photo my eyes went to the table cloth pattern and the vivid colors of Purples & Whites.
  • I wanted to create a background to mimic this table cloth so I inked up the pattern side of the Finial Press Embossing folder with Perfect Plum ink. I then took a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot...and I had the effect I was looking for.
  • I didn't want to lose too much of my background so I choose to just use a Sentiment for my little Stamp mat image.

  • For my final touches I used Designer Buttons dressed up with some Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon.
