Timeless Tuesday Inspirations

For Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge this week, they ask for cards that are inspired by Kim Poloson's gorgeous posters.

The first card is inspired by this. I followed the color scheme, but changed my focal image to this seahorse. Both the seahorse and sentiment are from the latest StampTV kit. I did the rock and roll technique using SU's Read Red and Memento Tuxedo Black on GinaK Pure Luxury Cream CS. The Old Olive "seaweed" is actually a branch stamp from There She Goes' Acts of Kindness set.

The second card is inspired by this poster. I used my well-loved butterfly stamp from Inkadinkadoo. It was stamped in Close To Cocoa on an Urban Prairie (by Basic Grey) paper. The swirls stamp is from the Sept KOTM from Unity. The sentiment is from Trendy Trees by SU. The lace is one I found laying around and I just love its vintage look. The cardstock and ribbon are Aquamist by PTI.
