Over at House of Cards they are doing a photo inspired challenge, blog hop, and a DT call. They have fantastic prizes and a great photo to design by. It is at the end of this post.
Here is my card. This is how I was inspired by the photo:
- Flowers in the basket-flowers on the card
- Numbers on the jars-I used translucent embossing paste (wendi vecchi) with the Cargo stencil (tim holtz) on the green layer of the background. I used a grey and white stamp pad over the green paper to lighten it.
- The green stems for the green layer of the background
- If you look in the basket there is a yellow flower toward the right-the yellow ribbon was inspired by this.
The photo is great! I used a piece of clear scraps for the sentiment. And the sentiment is from an older set of Stampin Up stamps that I bought at a thrift store (scrore!). The flower stamps are from Sparkle N Sprinkle with brads in the center.
To make the first layer of the background I applied this distress ink. But it wasn't enough. So I inked up this stamp from Tim Holtz (stampers anonymous) and rolled it onto the card base in different directions. It's subtle but it gave this area little extra something. :)
Here's the picture if you haven't already seen it. There is still time to play, hop, and apply! :)
Until next time my friends...have a good evening! :)
