CRAFT Challenge #401 - Inspiration Picture.

Good morning! I hope you're all looking forward to a great weekend! While you're waiting, have a look at our new Challenge at CRAFT Challenge which is this lovely picture for you to take inspiration from:

This goldfinch sitting on a thistle is so pretty!

From the picture I took the colours red, yellow and brown; the thistle; and that a flock of goldfinches is called a 'charm'!

The elegant image is Marseilles Chapeau by Rick St Dennis MFA - sadly she is out of print, but he has other similar, gorgeous images! I coloured her with Promarkers. I added Wink of Stella to the feathers in her chapeau, and pearl drops to her jewellery.

The papers are snippets from my scraps drawer. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, and have been glittered. The kraft die-cuts are made with a Memory Box Chloe Stem. The ribbon and the bird charm are also from stash. The sentiment is from Altenew's Label Love.

We have two fab sponsors this week:

Crafty Ribbons

Rick St Dennis MFA

Go and see how my fab teamies have used the picture for their inspiration!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x

Clever you to have your pretty lady silhouette costumed in the colors of your inspiration! Love the oval setting for her pretty self, and all the feminine embellies you've added to make her really special! TFS & Hugs

Wow, Mags, this is such a wonderful card for so many reasons! Your coloring is fab as usual but the flowers and their lovely placement really make this card special. I always hesitate to do the RSD images, but you do them up so beautifully!
