30 Days of Inspiration-Day 4

Hello and Happy Easter! I hope you all had a nice day! Today's inspiration was pulled from one of the Easter buckets I made for my nieces and nephews. I bought my niece, Taylor a pair of flip flops that were so fun and colorful that they were just calling to me to as an inspiration piece. Here they are with the card that was inspired by them...I started with a white card and colored the background quickly with a Copic Marker to pull the yellow from the flip flops and to give it a youthful, playful look. I used my slice machine to die-cut the flower pattern and I was really inspired by the sparkly gel look of the straps so I recreated it with vellum. Here is a better look at it...I took some pink vellum and rubbed some clear sticklez on it. Vellum doesn't like anything wet, but I used it to my benefit and it gave it a really great texture! I stapled it down on each end to keep it flat and it's hard to see in the picture, but it is sparkly, just like the shoes! Fun!

Thought I'd share the "loot" that the kids received from Aunt Heather...So spoiled.Okay, long day...off to bed. Be back tomorrow!
