Inspired by

On opening one of the Christmas gifts from my parents, apart from delight at the actual pyjamas, I could not help notice the design was reminiscent of a Laura Ashley stamp I own.  A perfect opportunity to dig it out and actually use it.

For this  simple little notecard I used the same stamp to stamp the background using Distress Ink in Milled Lavender and then stamped in black for the focal image.  As the soothing scent of lavender is associated with sleep I used a sprig which I had dried last year.

I wonder what will trigger my next “inspired by” moment?

    This is beautiful! How clever of you to spot the design was similar to your jim-jams! It is interesting how designs in craft are inspired by clothes and home furnishings and vice versa. Could you use the stamp maybe to make a pyjama case or slippers? That would be ace!

    That’s so pretty, Lynne – love it 🙂 I love real lavender, though I’m not a fan of the artificial stuff and I can almost smell it, just looking at that.
