Hi everyone! Carisa here from Inky Fairy Designs back with another post for you! First I want to say thank you ALL so much for the incredible comments on my first post—you guys are absolutely why I LOVE this hobby so much!!
For today?s post, I was asked to use a photo for inspiration; it could be from anywhere like a magazine, art, etc. I headed to Pinterest!Â I searched general categories like art, fashion and even popular to get a completely random group of pins. I saw the image belowÂ and immediately knew I had found my inspiration.
Pretty, right?! As soon as I saw it, I remembered a die I had in my stash that was the perfect pattern and I knew I wanted to use my watercolors to create the background. It was instant how I had my idea and I couldn?t wait to get started.
What about you? Where do you look for inspiration in your card making? Do you hop on Pinterest like I did or do you find it somewhere else? I?d love to hear about your favorite places to find inspiration in the comments below! Seriously … IÂ have another photo inspired challenge in a few months and need some ideas. 😉
