Copper Jug

Hi!  This week at Just Add Ink we have a photo inspiration for you and fair to say, I did a literal translation for my card:

The jug was embossed with Rose Gold EP and then die-cut.  The flowers were all stamped in grays with a touch of yellow and the brick wall behind the jug was sponged in gray inks as well.  The brick wall panel was cut narrower than a card front and then popped up on foam tape onto a Soft Stone top folding card.  I then added a white embossed sentiment on Slate cardstock before adding the jug and flowers.

And here is the inspiration photo for you.  Is it not gorgeous?

No automatic alt text available.
