Hi, and welcome to a scheduled post to let you know about the latest challenge over at Addicted to Stamps. This week it is our photo inspiration challenge and this is my card.
This is the photo that inspired it.
Now I'm not a great fan of Halloween, so I ignored the pumpkins and went with the stripes in jewel colours as my inspiration.
I had a great time at the stamp fair at Port Sunlight on Saturday. I met a few bloggy friends and spent quite a bit and one of my purchases was this butterfly image from Visible image, Butterfly INKognito, I had seen it in a magazine before and was tempted to indulge!
To achieve the striped effect I inked the butterfly image with DI's to match the colours in the photo masking as I went. I spritzed the inked stamp to make the colours come to life then stamped it onto a white panel. The feint texture on the butterfly is a left over from a previous experiment but I liked the effect so went with it, the sentiment I used is from this weeks sponsor,
who are offering a 10$ gift certificate to the winner chosen by the DT.
The stamped panel was mounted on black then a bright pink base card.
That's me done but for more fabulous inspiration please check out the rest of the team.
