Not only does it mean the weekend is almost here, but we have a new inspirational photo challenge to introduce!
This week was my choice and I wanted to pick something that reminds me of spring/summer! It's been a long winter and I've had warmer weather on my mind! I chose this photo of beautiful outdoor furniture from the Pier One website - one of my favourite home decor stores. How nice would this be, to relax by the poolside in this inviting comfy chair on a warm summer day? :)
I love the colours in this photo! I decided to use Island Indigo, Pool Party, Old Olive, and Smokey Slate. I used the new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches as a guide for my card design.
I am also linking up with The Friday Mashup challenge:
- Create a project that's "Monochromatic".
- Create a project with "Flowers".
- or Create a "Monochromatic project with Flowers".
I used the new stamp set Petal Parade from the Sale-a-Bration catalogue, stamping flowers in monochromatic colours randomly to create the background. I then added different elements, popping them up to create some dimension. I love a card with layers!
Hop on over to Karly's Creations to see how this photo inspired her!
