Keep promising my husband that I will take all my craft stuff off the dining room table so we can eat at it but everytime I go to do it, I end up finding another card challenge I want to create for....will move it tomorrow...promise....
This is one of my favourite challenges because I love the photos that are used for inspiration.
There are so many gorgeous colours in the photo but of course the blue and teal colours grabbed hold of me first. I decided this week to try something different and try to include other colours from the photo.
One of the other things that caught my eye was on the left-hand side (above the lamp) is a pink heart on canvas. I knew I had a stamp somewhere similar to that, so my idea became a reality.
I love this part, where I put my photo in below the inspiration photo and I can actually see where my card fits in. There are a lot of frames on the wall so decided to have my papers over to the side to show like a frame around the top of each one. I stamped with my heart all over the place and then placed a frame die-cut on foam stickers with a happy sentiment.
The frame is very similar to the bedhead and the pink and black frames on the wall. Very bright card for me and I love it!!!
The teal paper is from Echo Park 'Everyday Eclectic'. The heart stamp is from Simon Says Stamps and I used my Mama Elephant 'Ocean', 'Sunshine' and 'Lollipop' ink pads. The 'Happy' sentiment is from Kaisercraft 'You' set.
The teal enamel dots are a new product stocked by Papervine. They are such a good price and in so many shades and colours. I just saw Lowri this morning at a local Craft Fair and she has so many new goodies. She has just started selling Studio Calico Sequins and they are just divine. If you have a chance, please have a look at her store, she does post internationally and is such a lovely woman. Nice to support someone from our little town.
Off to rescue my poor roast potatoes. Why I try to cook and blog at the same time I will never know......
