Inspired by...Clare

This week's featured artist has a style all her own, full of beautiful touches, ruffles, ribbon, and everything pretty!  It's Clare of Clare's Creations.  Here's a look at her first inspiration card:
I love all of the vintage touches and layers on Clare's card!  Aren't the lace and pretty bow over-the-top gorgeous?
Here's my take.  While at first glance my card doesn't look like Clare's I was inspired by her overall design and layout.

Patterned papers are by Create Paper (Farmhouse collection).  Penny Black 4156K Star-Inspired was stamped 2 times with VersaMark ink onto Tiara White cardstock.  I sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat to set. To one flower I added Broken China and Old Paper Distress Ink and to the other I applied Brushed Corduroy and Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.  On the orange flower I used Copic R18 to color in some sections of the flower, coloring right over the inked areas.  Sentiment by SRM stickers. Flower center created using Candi dots.

Thanks for popping by! See ya tomorrow with another precious card by Clare!

Jill this is beautiful. I really enjoy how your blog reminds us that everyone can inspire another and each artist's interpretation is a reflection of their personal creative style.

Another super talented lady. I am going to have to have to start wearing a bib, to catch the drool, in awe and envy of you and the ladies that you highlight.
It has actually been enough to get me working and enjoying crafting again.

I LOVE Clare's card! Love all that vintagy "stuff" she added (I am not good at it but often drool over other peoples work!) And I just love to see where you get your inspiration! I have to say that this is one of my all time favourite layouts too! I love your inking as always!
