Addicted to Stamps and More #160

Hi guys

At Addicted to Stamps and More there is another challenge just starting.  Continuing with our sequence of challenges, this week we are back with a...

Photo Inspiration Challenge
You may take any element from the photo that inspires you.  It may be the colours, an image, a theme, etc.

Here's the photo...

Our Sponsor for this week's challenge is Stitchy Bear and the prize up for grabs is 3 images up to the value of $10.

I've used an image from our sponsor for my DT card this week, here it is...

I printed the digi image onto some cardstock, choosing to print it in 'draft' mode to soften the black a little.  I cut the cardstock down to the size I wanted and then stamped the sentiment in charcoal grey.  I didn't want to spend ages colouring my image only to mess up the sentiment at the end (this has happened to me before!).  I then coloured the image with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers.  Next I laid a speckles stencil over the image, masking off around the mushrooms, and then applied some white embossing paste through the stencil to add the dotty texture.  The panel was then matted onto some orange cardstock before adhering flat to the card base.

Materials used:
  • Digi Image: Stitchy Bear - Mushroom Delight
  • Stamp: Woodware - Salutations
  • Ink: Versa Color - Charcoal
  • Stencil: Tim Holtz - Speckles
  • Embossing Paste: Dreamweaver
  • Coloured with ProMarkers and FlexMarkers

I hope you'll be inspired by our photo this week and hope to see you over at ATSM.  My teamies have some great projects to inspire you so why not check these out and leave them some love.

Thanks so much for visiting today.  I'll be back later this evening to tell you about the new challenge at Happy Little Stampers.
