Addicted to Stamps and More #305 - Photo Inspiration


I have just come back from a few days in Scotland (a lovely break)
and only just checked my computer - this post obviously didn't post!!



Here's my card for the Photo Inspiration Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.
Do pop over and have a look at the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team...

My make is basically inspired by the colours in the photo...



I belong to a crafty exchange group - UK Stampers Network. One of the swaps we do involves making something from a freebie that someone has received and sent round as a challenge. This time I received this little picture with a frame.

I decided to make an ATC easel card using the frame cut in two as the stand.
This is the front using various scraps from my work table - including the sentiment words. For the matting layers I used several scraps of silver.



This front section measures only 2.5 by 3.5 inches.
The base is folded from a 2.5 inch wide strip from a 12 by 12.



I was delighted to win the prize in Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Snippets Playground #331
Watch this space for when I make something with the new die!!
I will link today's easel ATC to Snippets Playground #332






Hope you will enter the Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge!

Hiding in My Craft Room #365 -Super Scraps Saturday


Do pop over and see the inspiration from my teamies!!

Here's my make for HIMCR #365 - Super Scraps Saturday.


The sponsor is Oddball Art!

Oddball Art Stamps

The giveaway is 2 images to Oddball Art!


Here's my card:


Recipe:

1. I have used a square kraft card base.
2. I matted this with a paper from The Works - one of their 3 pound paper pads.
3. I then took a couple of scraps of paper from the same pad to make two ovals and distressed these around the edges with 'worn lipstick'. These were then glued in place.
4. Next I added the teapot - a die from Craftstash - cut from a scrap of purple, and placed over the top oval.
5. I coloured the image with Copics and cut her out and placed her over the second oval.
6. Finally I added the arrows that came with the image, also cut out.


Hope you will enter the HIMCR  Challenge!
