Happy Saturday!  The Rubbernecker release and Blog Stroll was so much fun and very exciting.  Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to all the winners!

Now that the dust from the past couple of days have settled, I thought it would be fun to check in on the Saturday Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers.  Today’s inspiration comes from the Grandin Road online store.  I looked at the samples shown in the thread but ended up going online and finding this one:

The minute I saw this piece of wall art I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Here’s my take:

IC175 Wildflower Inchies

The first thing I did was make the background the inchies are mounted on.  I stamped and embossed the new Abstract Floral Background from Rubbernecker and then sponged the entire panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I then stamped the image panel, cut the panel into 1” squares and mounted the squares on 1” squares made from Chipboard Coasters.  The background behind all this, is the Abstract Floral Background stamped in Antique Linen on white.  At the last minute I decided to distress the edges of the backgrounds and sponge everything with Antique Linen.  To finish off the card and even though you can’t see it very well in the photo, I tied an old button from my stash onto melted ribbon.

Thanks for stopping in today and Smiley from millan.net

  1. I love all of the distressed and vintage features of this card. so gorgeous! I used to melt a lot of my ribbon, but seem to have gotten away from it. thanks for the reminder! looks great with that button! and wonderful inchies! 🙂

  3. Boy, girl, you nailed this challenge….I love, love , love your awesome card with the wonderful distressing and just look at how you used the image…shear genius!!!

  4. I just love this look Sherry. Question for you – do you remove a little bit of the image for the spacing between each panel or do you simply pull the image apart? i.e. if you put it back together again would the image line up perfectly as it was stamped? not sure if I am asking this in a confusing enough way or not!
