Who inspires You???????????

For me today it was a card from Joy Taylor (here is her card)
What inspired me?
- the design
- the watercolouring

I was home sick today - a very heavy head cold and after having a sleep in the morning, I decided to play a bit.

I white embossed some flowers from Clearly Besotted onto some ranger watercolour card.  Once it was all embossed I added water and some Distress Inks in Seedless Preserves and Peeled Paint.  The sentiment is from a Hero Art set.  Finished with some enamel dots. 

I'm entering this into the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp -Girly
Virginia's View - All things Embossed

Feeling really rotten now... sitting shivering and coughing and sneezing... so a few more blogs to check out, then off for an early night. Thanks for stopping by.
