This is one of the cards I made for the new Inspiration Emporium Challenge, which is to use fragments on your project.

For this sample I used a round fragment (which are unfortunately retired), stamped an image from Tim’s Urban Chic stamp set in Jet Black Archival ink and let it dry. Next I turned it over and added paint from Adirondack Acrylic Paint Aqua, Red Pepper and Sunset Orange. Once that was dry I used it as focal point of my card.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Solar White cardstock folded in half. The corners were rounded and the card front was embossed with Cuttlebug’s Brocade Embossing folder.

A 2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Playground Echo Park paper as adhered over a piece of black cardstock, that had been cut and embossed with the new Rectangle Lattice Nestabilities. It was adhered to the lower half of the card base. White organdy Ribbon was tied around the strip and a Muse Token was attached to the ribbon with iridescent curling ribbon.

I hope you have time to play. You could win a $50 shopping spree at Inspiration Emporium.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day! Hugs and smiles
