Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge

The DDIC this week takes its inspiration from this beautiful fabric. The print is by Kobayashi called Chysanthemums, and I wish it was still available, because it's so gorgeous. The beige background and the variety of flowers, plus the wavy lines give it so much dimension.


My version of this fabric is here, below, done in beige, with razzleberry, durango, curry, and a touch of bermuda bay. I tried to keep a variety of flowers, as in the original, added some wavy lines, and used the punch as a textural dimension.




The layout for my card is an easel, the directions for which can be found in the SCS forum under

TLC242. Very easy and fun to do.


I hope you will join us in the DDIC .....just be sure to put those letters in your keyword so we can find your card in the SCS gallery.


Be sure to check out what all the other Divas have done with this challenge. Click on their names on my sidebar! See you again on November 5th.
