Inspired By #174 ~ Orange You Lemonade

 

 

Orange you glad it's Thursday? 

I am, that means it time for a new Inspired By challenge!



When I first saw our prompt photo, those black leaves caught my eye right away. So much so that I covered a whole panel with them using Versa Mark ink and clear embossing powder! How do you like my lemon? I hand cut my own stencil! The oranges were made using the negative of a circle die cut. Then came a few more leaves. 

Don't forget, you can use the inspiration photo, the sketch or both!

How will you be inspired? I'm sure the team has some terrific ideas. Let's go check them out!

I wish I had been as enterprising as you to create your own stencil...actually I did think about doing that, but was lazy, LOL! I am very impressed by your striking card. It's so out of your normal style, I am blown away! But I LOVE it! Just fabulous!

Catching up after a fortnight away from blogland, Lisa ... and had to stop and tell you how fabulous this card is! The black on black is deliciously dramatic ... such a fantastic contrast with the softness of your shaded, stencilled (which is brilliant btw!), zesty oranges and lemon! Mouthwatering! Hugs, Anita :)
