After being a little frustrated over my failed design with this week's Stamp of the Week, I headed over here
And I came across this image Pinned by Angela Ploegman

I loved the water color, multi-colored technique Danielle used with this Papertrey Ink image and the gold sequin. It made me remember the wood feathers I had in my stash and how great they might look with some of Heidi Swapp's Color Shine.
So I started with the feathers, misting them with two of my favorite shades, Chartreuse and Teal. I also thought a background would be a fun so I used the heart background from my Unity Stamp Co. December SMAK kit (You are LOVED) stamped in Studio G's grey pigment ink.
Then I chose my sentiment, the Love This from Simon Says Stamp Love This set. I wish I had a LIFE stamp for the inside but I couldn't find anything I liked and when I looked at it, I don't think Love This really made sense until I added the Thank You image from Technique Tuesday. Finally, I finished the card off with some sequins and bling.
And there you have it, my inspiration from failure card. I can tell you that once I finished this card, I knew exactly where to begin with try #2 of my Stamp of the Week image.
What do you do when you are faced with design failure? I'd love for you to share your story!
Thanks for stopping by today!
