Pinspire Me Purples and Blues

How about a gorgeous wintery mood board to spark your creativity?! Here is the first Pinspire Me challenge for 2016! I love the soft purples, blues, and greys. It really pushed me outside of my comfort zone but that's what challenges are all about!

This was a great opportunity for me to bust back into my Dear Lizzy Serendipity collection, which is filled with soft purples, blues, and pinks. I used the Serendipity 6x6 paper pad, watercolor die cut phrases, and the ephemera pack to create my card...

I watercolored the 'hello' die cut using Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Dusty Concord, and Seedless Preserves and let it dry completely. Then I applied a thick layer of Glossy Accents to give the 'hello' some dimension and a nice shiny finish. Other than that, I just layered some ephemera pieces underneath the phrase and finished it off with some washi tape and sequins.

I hope you have been inspired to play along with the Pinspire Me challenge over at Paper Issues! Have fun crafting :)
