Addicted to Stamps and More #110

Good morning crafters

Well, it's Wednesday again so there is a new challenge starting over at Addicted to Stamps and More, and this week we have a challenge for you in the form of a...

Photo Inspiration
You may take any element of the photo that inspires you, e.g. the colours, image, theme, etc.

We have a wonderful sponsor this week, QKR Stampede, who are offering a prize of 3 digis to one lucky winner.

Here is my DT card

I cut a strip of woodgrain patterned paper and stamped the bloom and leaf with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with white powder.  The white powder is actually quite creamy so I opted for a cream card base instead of white.  I mounted the patterned paper onto some dark brown cardstock before adhering to my card base.  I then used the same brown cardstock to stamp the sentiment, again in VersaMark and heat embossed in white.  I then fussy cut this out before attaching with 3D foam.  

I think you can clearly see where my inspiration came from: the woodgrain, the skirt that looks exactly like flower petals and the ballerina's head was my inspiration for the round sentiment.

Materials used:
  • Patterned paper: Fancy Pants - Country Boutique
  • Cardstock: Bazzill Basics - Premium Cardstock (brown); card base from stash
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up - Flower Shop; Uniko Studio - Natures Treasures #1 (leaf); Sentiment stamp - unknown brand
  • Ink: VersaMark
  • Embossing Powder: Stampin' Up - white

My fellow members of the ATSM Design Team have some great projects showing how they were inspired by this week's photo so why not pop over and take a look and have a go at the challenge yourself.

Ok, that's all for now, thanks for visiting and I hope to see you again soon :)
