Hi everyone! I hope the sun is shining in your part of the world like it is in mine! We've been having some pretty nice summer weather here and I'm lovin' it!
Today, Marisa has chosen a great photo for the Just Us Girls Photo Inspiration Challenge. Love these colors!
Here's a close-up of the photo so you can see more of the details. Gorgeous!
My inspiration came from the chevrons, the bedspread, and polka dots. I stamped the chevrons in gray ink, then die cut the leaf from black cardstock. The flowers were stamped in black ink, then I used a 1" and 3/4" punch and some polka dot paper for the centers. There's some Wink of Stella shimmer on the flower centers which you can't see in the photo. I die cut the "hello" about five times and stacked them together. I put some glossy accents on it (it's still wet in the photo and looks a little blue-ish). I added some enamel dots to finish it off.
I used the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch as my inspiration for the layout. It's a pretty loose sketch! I hope mine is acceptable!
You can see more inspiration from the JUGs DT on these blogs.
