This card owes it existence to something akin to the chicken and the egg debate. Inspiration from The Card Concept, Paper Smooches Sparks and CCEE Stampers Challenge blogs. I've used the PS Sparks February sketch, inlaid diecutting from CCEE Stampers and the colours, textures and multimedia style from The Card Concept inspiration photo.
I've stamped with distress inks and pigment ink. The background is watercoloured with distress inks, with aqua dolce gelato blended with my finger and more distress ink around the edges. I've covered the embossing paste with stickles and splatted some distress paint. I've white washed the wooden vase with distress paint and a white colouring pencil to mimic the white wood in the inspiration photo. The central vase is a homage to the vase I instagrammed a few weeks ago and is coloured with brushed pewter distress spray stain. The third vase is velum, coloured with a Sky Blue ProMarker and I've added seed beads to look like the decorative glass beads that can be added to vases.
Perspective is a tad skewed with the sliver vase and it appears to be floating a little. My die cutting was a little high and I only noticed it as I edited the photos, when it was too late to start again. I don't know if I would have started again anyway, as the die cutting was quite intricate and this is a piece of art where the rules of physics don't need to apply!
