Franz Porcelain Inspired

My sweet friend, Anne (aka Itsapassion on SCS) is hostessing the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The inspiration website Anne provided features Franz Porcelain items...some of the most exquisite and loveliest pieces of porcelain I've ever laid my eyes on.

I chose this stunning Floral Bouquet Creamer as my inspiration piece. I was drawn to the vibrant blue. I stamped my Delight in Life flowers with Tuxedo Memento Black ink onto white cardstock and then colored the flowers with Copic markers using brushstrokes. I then lightly added thin black strokes with Marvy LePlume thin point marker.

My bow was made with the Bow Easy, and I used the MS zig zag punch for the border under my sentiment.

I hope you'll find some time to play in the Inspiration Challenge. Look for IC204 in the challenge forums at Splitcoaststampers.

Beautiful colours - that intense blue always reminds me of gentians, which brings back happy memories :D. And I love that beautiful bow, too.
