Inspiration Saturday #35-2016

When you see this picture, what comes to your mind?  

Gracie had a vision of this card-

The photo reminds me of going to Arkansas and digging for rocks, crystals, and diamonds but all we came home with were a few crystals  and  some pretty rocks - didn't  find any geodesic or diamonds!  I used a stencil and sponged Tim  Holtz  distress  inks fried brick, mustard seed, weathered woid, seedless perseveres, and black soot.  I die cut the "thanks" and the flourishes from dark yellow cs.  The card base is a deep purple.  I added a few bronze metal accents . ~ Gracie  

Tantalaya also did a Thank You card with a rich variety of colors-

This one was a challenge for me this week. I kept staring at the photo not sure where I was going to go. So I took the grey and made it the card base I then took black card stock and made it an 1/8"shorter then the A2 size card then took ome watercolor paper and distress inks and created a rainbow background. I took a page from Kristina Werner and sprayed water on it to create a great look. Finished off card with large Thanks die cut which I used the glitter brush marker from spectrum noir in clear. - Tantalaya

Let your vision of the inspiration photo guide your next card -
