C4C217 - Thanks a Bunch

Happy Saturday! :) I've joined the ladies over at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog, and will be posting along with them each week.  Today's challenge is an inspiration challenge using the photo below, whether it's the colors, theme, accents, you name it:

I was really drawn to use of kraft with a touch of black, so that's what I based the focal point of my card on.  I love, love, love the Bloomin' Aussies stamp set from Flourishes Stamps, and thought it would be perfect for this card as a silhouette image!

To create my card, I started with a kraft card base, then masked one of the images from the Bloomin' Aussies stamp set on the card front.  Next, I outlined the images with a gray Copic, then stamped the sentiment on a strip of white cardstock in red ink.  To finish up, I stamped some additional sentiments in Versamark ink onto a piece of navy cardstock, then adhered it to the card front.

Want to play along with us this week? All you have to do is create a card/project using the photo above as inspiration, then link your creation to the C4C217 blog post.

Have a great one!
