UDI Inspiration Challenge #70

This is my long ago post that I haven't been able to post. Shortly after my last post, my laptop essentially died. Well, it is back - I use that term lightly though. As I type - my screen is flickering and I'm worried it will shut down again. I seriously need to get it checked out, but it needs to be on when I take it in because once it's off....it may not come back on.

Anyway - back to this post. The picture below was given to us to use as our inspiration. To see the Inpsiration Challenges (among others, such as Sketch Challenges) - go check out the UDI Blog for more ideas from other talented SU! demos.

Things to Note:
-- I went with the brown (sepia look) and the daisies for my inspiration
-- To 'color' the embossed flowers, I used Shimmer Paint

I made this for a friend/co-worker whose FIL passed away. I was really pleased with how it turned out. The flowers definitely 'shimmer'. This was the first time I've used the Shimmer Paints and will definitely use them more!!

Hopefully I'll have more to post and that my laptop will continue to work and I'll be able to get things posted.

Wishing everyone a wonderful and Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Stampin' Hugs,
Karen

It's always so much fun to see what each person makes from an inspiration challenge. I love the cards you came up with -- the flowers are so cheery!
