Hi friends! I was going through my Google Reader of all the MANY blogs I follow (I swear I spend more time looking than stamping!) and found this photo inspiration challenge from Inky Impressions. I immediately jumped for joy when I saw it because I have had an image colored and ready to use for maybe two years! I'm almost embarrassed to admit that! But I found it the other day when I was organizing and it was kismet when I saw this photo!
And here's the image. The umbrella and two chairs is what caught my eye. This is an image by Art Impressions that I got at my LSS. Like I said, it was already colored. It took me a while to find some paper that worked with it. I have TONS of paper, and I had a difficult time finding the right ones. I finally settled on these from Basic Grey's Lauderdale paper pack. I added the Cameo Coral flag that was cut with flag dies from WPlus9 Designs. The blue flower was purchased at AC Moore and the coral flower behind it is a Prima flower. I added some star dust stickles on the flowers in the picture and a yellow glitter pen on the lemonade pitcher and glasses.
I of course had to find a sketch to use (because I'm sketch challenged!), and I used this one from Sketchbook Saturday. I had to change out the circle for my square image. I also entered this into the SCS Free for All challenge called Weather or Not?
I'd love to know what you think of this one. I kind of like the color combination and I think the image looks pretty good on it. It's been waiting a long time for a home! LOL!! Thanks for stopping by!
