Pin-spiration!

Hi everyone!

Today I'm stopping by to share a little something I'm hoping to make a regular part of my blog. We'll see how it goes. ;) I've been finding my creative juices to be lacking the past few months and I'm hoping this little feature of mine will help me with that. Maybe it will inspire you too? :) My plan is to share a new card each week (hopefully on Tuesdays) based on a something I find on Pinterest.

Here's what inspired me this week (click picture to see pin):

I seem to be drawn to gray paired with a single colour and the chevrons made me think of the Simon Says Stamp Full Card Chevron die.

Here's my card:



I colored the chevron pieces using Hero Arts dye inks and an alcohol marker (for the lightest grey).

Supplies:



If you're inspired by this sneaker to make a card I'd love to see it! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah

P.S. If you've sent me friend requests on facebook in order to keep up with my blog posts I now have a page for that. Feel free to 'like' me over there. ;)
