Hello friends. It's the 25th and that means it time for Papertrey Ink's blog hop...oh happy day! I just love all the inspiration on these blog hops! And this months inspiration photo is SO cool!! I admit it stumped me at the beginning, but after thinking on it awhile, the colors and stripes were the 2 things that stood out to me, and this is what I came up with:
I ended up using my craft mat and ink cubes, and just made a strip of color right onto my craft mat with Scarlet Jewel, Autumn Rose, Pure Poppy, Hibiscus Burst, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, & Harvest Gold (I ran out of room to add the shades of tans and browns!). I lightly spritzed some water to the stripes of color before laying down my cardstock, and I really like the look of the watercolored stripes!! Then I had some fun with the new Pumpkin Patch stamp set and used the same colors as in the background. I popped up the middle pumpkin for some dimension, and added a few clear sequins and some off white string to finish the bright and fun card! Here's the inspiration photo:
With such an amazing photo, I'm sure there's going to be a ton of great cards to inspire you (and me!), so head on over to Nichole's blog and check it all out right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
