Addicted to Stamps and More #130

Hi there

Yet another week has whizzed by and we're ready with a another new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More.  This week, it's the turn of a...

Photo Inspiration challenge.
You can take any element from the photo that inspires you: the layout, image, colours, etc.

And with Valentine's Day coming up this month we've got a love themed photo for you...

This week's challenge sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and the winning prize is 7 digis!

Here is my DT card

I started by printing the digi sentiment on some white cardstock.  I then stamped the brush stroke images in rows in pale pink, pink and red before cutting it into a panel with a rectangular die.  Next I used some small heart dies to cut out some hearts from white and black cardstock.  The white hearts were coloured using the co-ordinating ink pads.  The panel and hearts were then adhered to the card base and I finished by adding some Glossy Accents to the three hearts.  I took my inspiration from lots of things here...the colours, the rows, the rectangle and the bold font.  This was super easy to make and I love how it turned out.

Materials used:
  • Digi: Pink Petticoat - Happy Heart Sentiments
  • Stamp: Stampin' Up! - Work of Art
  • Ink: Memento - Angel Pink, Lady Bug and Rose Bud
  • Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Rectangles; Lawn Fawn - Heart dies
  • Accents: Glossy Accents
