Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Monday 9 March 2015

It is Monday and therefore time for me to show you an inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.
 For this weeks' inspiration post I chose the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Peony Kimono Maiden" to work with.  I decided I wanted a Spring-like feel card and went for tones of orange, yellow and green as that reminds me of tulips and daffodils springing up in the Spring time.  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and made the background with a a turquoise blue, pink, green and yellow Pan Pastel and used the Pan Pastel blender to blend it all together.

The backing papers I have used I printed off about a year ago from Summertime Designs.

I have finished the card off with a lace bow, button, Lea'bilites tiny die-cut flowers, die-cut butterfly, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, Perfect Pearls, spotty grossgrain ribbon and some twine.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Anything goes and optional extra to use some hand made flowers (used various different dies to make my flowers)
Inspiration Destination - Anything goes
