Inspired by a skirt

Several weeks ago, in church, the woman sitting
in front of me had the cutest skirt... and it inspired me to make this card.


I started with a piece of watercolour paper and stamped the Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia stamp
 from Wplus9 in Versafine and heat embossed it in clear.
Then, I used my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush to colour them in,
as well as my background.


I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Winter Woods.

Thanks for looking!

lovely card Leigh - the soft colors are so pretty - wonderful design too - last year i made a card inspired by a woman sitting in front of me in church too - it was navy stripe with a flower over the stripes - too funny - inspiration is everywhere!

I had to laugh at this, Leigh. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is inspired by the clothing people wear to church. I don't know what the skirt looked like the the card is beautiful.
