Hello friends. It's the 25th, and to most people, that means it's the 25th...no biggie!! (unless it's your birthday or anniversary!) To me, the 25th means it's blog hop time over at Papertrey Ink! Crazy what happens to your life when you have an addiction! Oh well, it's all good!! I don't think I said "it's all good" when I first saw the inspiration photo for this months blog hop though...they seem to be getting tougher each month! Once I calm down though, and let my mind wander, ideas start popping up, and then "it's all good"! Here's this month's inspiration photo:
What I finally took from this photo was the colors (shades of red, orange, yellow, white, and a little black), and LOTS of circles! Enough circles to make you a little light headed! OK........
I started by blending my background using Fired Brick, Orange Marmalade, & Scattered Straw Distress Inks. Next I used white pigment ink and a Color Box stencil to add the white circles, creating a bokeh effect. Don't know if I have as many circles as the inspiration photo, but I think I'm close! :0) For the wine bottles and glasses I used PTI's Uncorked die set, and for the sentiment, I used the Wet Paint Cuts III Die Collection. A few black sequins (more circle shapes!) finished off this card that will go to our oldest daughter who will be celebrating her 27th birthday on Sunday, and who LOVES wine!
So don't let the inspiration photo intimidate you, and play along today! You can check out all the inspiration, and play along, over on Nichole's blog right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
