Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge # 240

Hi there everyone and welcome to another week at Addicted to Stamps and More!! This week we have a fabulous photo to inspire your creativeness:

Wish I was attending this celebration, what an amazing table setting!! You can be inspired by anything in this photo, its totally up to you!

Even though my eyes were immediately drawn to those gorgeous gold balloons, I also loved the colour combo of the black table cloth, the yellowness of the gold highlights and the white surroundings and flowers. This is what I came up with:

There is just something about a white/yellow/black combo that has me returning to it again and again!!

This was pretty simple to create. I started off by stamping the solid images from Neat and Tangled 'Scandinavian Prints' in yellow. I then went back and stamped the floral images (from the same stamp set) in black, not worrying too much if they lined up or not. The sentiment (from Verve 'New Beginnings') was stamped in black ink on a rectangle of white CS and I also gently added some yellow ink around the edges with a mini-blending tool. This was popped up on foam tape and I added a few yellow and clear sequins from Neat and Tangled for a bit more shine!!

I have three challenges I would like to enter:

Simon Says Stamp - Work It Wednesday - April (Rain and /or flowers)

Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes)
