Hello and welcome to the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!  We are glad you have joined us and look forward to spending time with you as we share at the market inspiration with you.  So sit back and enjoy your favorite cuppa as you enjoy your trip Around the World on Wednesday!

Today's Project

There is nothing like walking through a department store and being inspired by the store displays to create something beautiful.  The hubby recently sent me off to Dillard's Department Store to pick up something for him... well, I couldn't resist going through the home decor department to be swept away by inspiration for today's project.  The pattern of a hanging apron caught my eye, but it was the neatly folded stack of same that inspired today's project.

Project Details

The Wildflower Path Photopolymer Stamp Set was used to create the watercolor background on Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper using ink and a water brush.  The colors are Evening Evergreen, Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade and Orchid Oasis (new 2022-2024 In Color).  This amazing stamp set is a multiple step stamp allowing for quick stamping once you become familiar with the layering and coordinating images whether you create stalked wildflowers or random wildflower images.

Double 1/4" strips of Poppy Parade Cardstock were layered and aligned along the thicker watercolor layer to compliment the Thick Basic White card base.  These strips were inspired by the red stripe on the Dillard's Southern Living apron that caught my eye.  The 100% cotton aprons were crisply folded and stacked showing the top stripe and the floral details.  One apron was hanging freely on the corner of an adjacent display near coordinating accessories.  The Wildflower Path sentiment was stamped in Evening Evergreen ink onto a strip of Basic White Cardstock and die-cut along the left edge with an edge die from the Blooming Happiness Dies from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog.

The inside was stamped and layered to compliment the front.  Decorating the top panel allows for an insert to be added to the inside for extensive correspondence to a dear friend or family member during National Card and Letter Writing Month (happening now)!
