For today's inspiration challenge, I chose to make a quilt using Designer Paper by Scraperdashery. They were created to coordinate with Tim Holtz Distress Ink colors. Images and DP are available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co. I used the coordinating inks and stamped the eyelet border on 4 different colored 2" squares. They were all cut in quarters and quilted on to Prism Frosted Teal Cardstock. The center medallion was also stamped on the frosted teal and then I stamped it again in dried marigold and fired brick onto the marigold and pink/red DP and cut them out. The center is on foam dimensional tape. I layered the quilt on Prism Vibrant Teal CS and faux stitched the edges. The Blue/Purple part of the medallion was rock n rolled. But, I didn't want to contaminate my Broken China pad to get the Dusty Concord on the edges. To solve this, I inked up the image in China and used a baby wipe to remove ink from around the edges, rock n rolled them in Dusty Concord, misted to spread the ink a little and then stamped.
