Inspired By All the Little Things #59


Hey there, I am excited to guest design for this week's Inspired By All The Little Things Challenge #59. A big thank you to my friend Leigh Penner for inviting me!



Here is the inspiration photo:




As soon as I saw the inspiration photo, I knew I wanted to use my Hello Lovely stamp set by Concord & 9th. Is it not absolutely perfect for this inspiration photo? 

Concord & 9th | Hello Lovely

I was inspired by the pink and yellow flowers, as well as by the top and bottom arrangements in the photo.

I stamped, heat embossed in white, and colored with new-to-me Daniel Smith watercolor paints. Everything is custom mixed from the individual paints I own. (That's usually the way I watercolor, rather than straight out of the pans.)

Not wanting to cover up those gorgeous florals, I went with a simple sentiment white embossed on vellum, along with a tiny tag with a heart cut-out and some white linen thread.

For more inspiration, challenge details and link-up, visit the Inspired By All The Little Things challenge blog. There's also a fun Q&A with me over there :)

Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope you have an absolutely wonderful weekend!

Amy, this is so gorgeous. The sentiment stamped on vellum works perfectly to let the watercolor shine and take centre stage! Thanks for joining us this week at Inspired By.
