April Inspired By Feature

Hello there! It's time for DeNami Design's monthly "Inspired By" feature! This time around the DeNami DT was inspired by the fabulous Barb Murphy! Barb is such a talented stamper, and I absolutely LOVE this card she created:

I was inspired by the butterflies, the colors, the chevrons, and the way Barb stamped the hearts background to give it a more random look.

Here's my take:

I started by stamping the J16 Small Splatter onto a white cardstock base. I die-cut a rectangle from white cardstock and stamped the chevron border repeatedly to cover the panel. I adhered a tiny polka dot tab to the panel and adhered it to the card. I then die-cut a stitched rectangle and stamped the butterfly, curly q, and sentiment. I used markers to add some color to the butterfly and a Quickie Glue Pen to add a touch of glitter. To finish off I added a few of the super yummy 4mm Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and then adhered the completed panel to the card with foam tabs.

So...what do you think??? I hope you like my creation for today and feel inspired to get inky!

And...remember to check out the DeNami Design Blog to see how my fellow DT gals were inspired by Barb!!!

Have a FABULOUS day!
