It is quite interesting where we gather our inspiration. I find myself looking at ads, printed material, signs, almost everything for inspiration. Usually, it is the color combination that grab my immediate attention.

My daughter sent me this thank you note, which has been positioned over my kitchen sink for about a month. These were her wedding colors, and the florentine images of the card caught my attention.

As a stamper, I have been mulling around in my head how I could translate this into something I could use. Then, how do I get it onto paper and what stamps would I use?

I needed a sympathy card, so this spurred me into action. I love the clean quiet simplicity of this card. It invokes feelings of tranquility for me.

I would really like to own a stamp similar to this, obviously I don't. When the card was finished, I was pleased.

Very elegant and yes, I feel the tranquility too. I'm enjoying how you're taking images you see and turning them into your own. Great work!

Lovely! I like to see where you get your inspiration from, I am always seeing random things that inspire me as well.
