Have you ever looked at a piece of dp and decided you didn't like it? That is what happened here.
I had this striped paper in a pack and didn't like it so thought I would practice making an envelope from it. When I had an envelope made it laid on the desk and it kept drawing my eye so I finally looked at the P.O.T.D. and saw my first attempt at combining a style of two ladies that I admire. I laid it on the envelope and thought hmmm that might work. The card and stag are all watercolor paper.
Now Juliet at http://ballpointbliss.blogspot.com/ is the inspiration for a printed mat; since I seem to only use plain matting.
The feathered picture is inspired by Jackie at http://craftdesigns.blogspot.com/
Of course, I am no where near her gorgeous work.
The border is inspired by Chrissy at http://chrissys4cards.blogspot.com/
These three ladies have inspired me so often to step out of my comfort zone and stretched my learning curve. Thank you to you all.
This is the envelope that inspired it all. The colors are shades of rust and not pink.
Have a Blessed day.
