Happy Thursday, peeps! Gosh, can you believe it's the last day of May! Time flies! And time for another Inspired By challenge! A bit of an eclectic feel to my card today:
This was a fun one to make!! I used lots of different stamps, some are really old ones, too! Here's Laurel's inspiration photo:
There are so many inspiring elements in this photo!!! I wanted to do that cute little umbrella, but I have NO umbrella stamps at all...can you believe it? So instead, I went for that warm natural brown color, black and white, and the line-drawing elements! I pulled in a few of the other elements as well...dots, white on black, frames, well, you get the picture!
My bird is from Red Lead Paperworks; leaf is Vintage Leaves from SU, stamped in Hello Honey on Kraft paper and diecut with the Leaflets Framelits. The frame is an old die from My Favorite Things, and I used a WHEEL from SU to stamp the musical notes in Craft White ink!! When was the last time you used a wheel?!
The "bird" was from the same Red Lead stamp, and it was diecut with the Stitched Labels die; the "song" was stamped with the retired Simple Serif Alphabet set and hand-cut. "To Cheer You" is from Our Daily Bread Designs and the speckles are from a Paper Pumpkin set. I added some burlap ribbon and although it's hard to see, a faceted embellishment:
It's all mounted on a Thick White card, I just love this stuff, it's really sturdy and stands up well!
How will this photo inspire you? I hope you'll play along with us, I just can't wait to see what your creative minds will come up with!!! Share it with us at Inspired By!!
Thanks to Miss Sandy for these cool multi-colored lead pencils!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
