I'm beyond thrilled to announce that this week's featured artist is none other than the talented Silke Ledlow. I've admired Silke's work for years now and can't believe I get to share a taste of it here on "Inspired By..." Here's our first inspiration card by Silke:
I kept Silke's original sketch but went with a different color scheme on my card, completely inspired by the patterned paper on the left-hand side of my card. The flowers, Penny Black 3868J Portraits, were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Copic X-Press It cardstock and colored with Copic Markers. I wanted an artsy feel to the flowers so I did not go back and do additional blending with the lighter marker- just feathered in a darker shade and moved on. I then outlined each flower with Copic Marker W1 and distressed the entire piece using Old Paper Distress Ink. Sentiment is an SRM sticker. The background papers were inked with White Picket Fence Distress Stain to tone down the colors so they didn't distract from the main stamped image. SOOO easy to do with the new white stain.
Thanks so much for popping by! See ya tomorrow with another incredible card by Silke!
