Hello friends. Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday...I had a wonderful day celebrating with most of my family and LOTS of food! And now it's the 25th and in blogland, that means it's time for Papertrey Ink's monthly Blog Hop! Nichole picked a fun and bright and non-traditional inspiration photo for us to follow this month:
I took my inspiration totally from the colors in this photo...LOVED the aqua boxes with the gold polka dots!
I started by blending what I thought were the 4 main colors...Hawaiian Shores, Hibiscus Burst, Green Parakeet, & Lemon Tart, and then splattered with some water. Next I embossed in gold Heather Nichol's Snowflake Sparkle snowflakes, and then cut it out using a stitched circle die. I inlaid the circle into a white layer, and then layered that onto Hawaiian Shores and added both layers to a white card base. I also added a scalloped and stitched circle die cut in white to the outside edge of the circle and then stamped my sentiment in Hawaiian Shores from the same Snowflake Sparkle set. A single enamel dot that I had in my stash was the only extra that I added so that the focus was on the colors and gold snowflakes.
Can't wait to see how every one else interpreted the inspiration photo, so I'm off to go hopping! You can check it all out too right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
