Inspirational #107: Dreaming of Spring Flowers

Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!
We are excited to bring you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #107 - Dreaming of Spring Flowers

Deadline for submitting your projects is Wednesday, February 19 at 11:59 PM US Central time. 

This is Lynda hosting your Inspirational this week. Our theme this week is Dreaming of Spring Flowers.  That groundhog saw his shadow, so that means six more weeks of winter, so what better way to start to think about Spring, but to create something that has some Spring Flowers on it.  We want to see all those floral stamps. For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Here's my Inspirational:

For my project this challenge, I decided that I wanted to create a set of greeting cards that focused on the wonderful flower images of the Flower Collage Trio set.  I pulled out my Gelatos and first created these wonderful backgrounds on watercolor paper.  I then stamped my images onto white cardstock and used watercolor pencils to color the images in.  I used deckle scissors to cut out each colored image.  I mounted each image onto a trimmed piece of my watercolored background and then mounted the entire stack onto my card front.

here is an image of each card individually:

I hope these cards find you dreaming of spring and you'll put out your floral image stamps and join us!

Mary Anne created this awesome spring flower card:

Kendra created this warm and wonderful project:

Paula-Kay created this amazing project:

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline!  We look forward to seeing what you create!!

Inspiration Projects - After each Inspirational, the Inspiration Team will choose three projects from those submitted via the link-up tool below which we think best reflect the theme of the Inspirational.
