For Your Inspiration #5

I decided to play along with the FYI challenge this week when I saw this gorgeous photo.  I knew right away what card I wanted to create. 


I took a literal interpretation from this photo and created a scenic card with a church, clouds and grass.  Of course my little country church is quite humble compared to that cathedral.


I loved Stampscapes stamps!  I have a few and I just don't spend enough time playing with them.  Gotta remedy that.  I stamped the church scene and the tall grass in the foreground in Memento black and the clouds in Memento Sky Blue.  I used Prismacolor pencils and Copics to color in the grass.

This card was sent off to a special stamping buddy who is in the hospital undergoing some pretty rigorous chemo treatments right now.
