For the month of June, the Dreamweaver Design Team has been challenged to create a project that is inspired by something seen on Pinterest, a challenge I am calling PINSPIRATION!

So here is my inspiration piece:

and its link:

I love the bright and vivid colors of these Gerber Daisies and instantly thought of combining them Dreamweaver's brand new LL3031 Shasta Flower Trio stencil:

and Dreamweaver's LX7014 Daisy background stencil:

I love the end result. It is so vibrant and cheery. What do you think?

Both stencil images were machine-embossed. The background was then colored using Distress inks and Ranger's ink blending tool in Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed.

The Shasta Flower Trio was colored with my absolute favorite coloring medium, PAINSTIKS! I love their creaminess and blendability. I also love the fact that they can be used on fabric and other porous mediums and once dry are permanent. How cool is that?!

Okay, now that you've seen my inspiration, please leave me some love and then head over to the other participating Design Team members blogs and check out their PINSPIRATIONS!

Remember, this monthly challenge is not for Dreamweaver Design Team members only. Everyone is invited (and encouraged) to participate. All you need to do to be eligible to win a prize is to link a picture of your creation using the linky tool on Dreamweaver's blog. More details and the link can be found here

Thanks for stopping by. I hope my little PINSPIRATION brought some cheer to your day.

Hugs and Happy Pinning!
