The current MFPSpeedyTV Inspiration Challenge for the next two weeks is all about the wonderful colors and landscape of Ruby Falls. I visited Ruby Falls for the first time this year and it was AMAZING! Here are the inspiration pictures:
Aren't they beautiful? Here is my card inspired by the first picture:
I used the MFP Hydrangea Set to make this card and my papers are from SU!, The Paper Studio, and Hampton Art. To color my individual flowers, I smeared a piece of aluminum foil with various shades of SU! and Tim Holtz Distress Inks which I sprayed with water. I then took each flower and pulled it through the colors. I let the flowers almost dry, and then I cut around each bloom part of the way to the middle to shape inward. I let them dry all the way and then I layered them on a circle cut with a Spellbinders Circle die. Lastly, I took some Stickles and put a little in the middle of each bloom and around the edges. The card is so sparkly and has so much dimension. I can't wait to use it!
Hope you are having a good week and that you have a chance to play in this challenge which will run for 2 weeks and has a wonderfully fun prize. You do not have to use an MFP image although we would love it if you did.
