Scarlet Berry Inspiration

The Inspiration Challenge tonight is a site called Little Odd Forest which carries a number of things...including numerous purses.

I was taken by this one (link above) called Scarlet Berries

I was thinking about my new Topiary set from Flourishes and how the colors and pattern inspired me.

The Topiary is colored with copics, and I added copic shadow and then sponged with So Saffron. I've added rhinestone berries (clear rhinestones colored with a sharpie).

I also wanted to mimic the corners of the purse on the design, so I took the Labels Four Nestability and cut it down in sections and used it on the design.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Saturday!
Recipe: Stamps: Flourishes - Topiary; Ink: Palette Noir; Paper: Basic Black, Old Olive, Ruby Red, Copic Paper; Accessories: Big Shot, Spellbinders Labels Four, Texturz Plate; Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon, Clear Rhinestones, Red Sharpie, Copic Markers, Ornare Piercing mat and piercer, Dimensionals
