Inspired by Pinterest

Hello everybody,
How is the New Year treating you? It has been good so far except I am bored doing the same things over and over again everyday. I would love a break. But cannot see any coming though! 
One thing I don't get bored doing is craft. So I browsed through my Pinterest board and found an inspirational picture and made cards using it. Here is inspirational picture.

Looks so modern and pretty. I love cloud like effect on it, the Eiffel tower and the stamps too. Love the plane but I don't have a small plane stamp on me.
I tried distress ink and mini mister technique on my panel. Then stamped a few stamps on it and here is how my panel looked like


I did a horizontal panel as well.


Now using these panels I made my cards. This the vertical card.

This is the horizontal card.

I love how they turned out. Many layers of stamps give depth to panel. I used about 4 different set of stamps from four different companies.Here are the list of supplies.

Cardstock: Papertry Ink Cream cardstock. SU's Watercolour paper.
Inks: Fired Brick, Worn Lipstick and Antique Linen DIstress Inks, SU's Basic Black and Memento Black Ink.
Stamp Set: Postmarks from Papertrey Ink, Spring Post from Wplus9, First Class Friend from MFT and Artistic Etchings from SU.
Accessories: Twine from Doodlebug, Paper roses from Prima Marketing.

I have a mini blog hop coming up tomorrow. So make sure you tune in :)
Have a great evening!
