Hi everyone! The new challenge over at Time Out is our Home Sweet Home challenge. We give you a photo from a home and you use it as inspiration.
This is the photo chosen for this challenge. Pretty cool window, huh?
I hope you can see what my inspiration was...that arch! I found a sketch (you can see it below) that I wanted to use and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. I have a first birthday to go to in a couple of weeks, so I thought I'd make a little birthday boy card. I've had this stamp set from WPlus9 for quite a while and have never used it yet. I die cut a circle and, using a stencil, smooshed Versamark ink though it. I then embossed the dots with white embossing powder. After that, I sponged two distress inks over the dots. That circle border was also sponged with distress ink to match the bottom piece. I used Zig markers on the elephant, balloon, and hat. I couldn't find cardstock for a mat to match the distress ink colors, so I sponged the mat and added the main panel on top. That was all adhered to the base with fun foam for dimension. There's Wink of Stella on the balloon and the elephant's hat.
This is the sketch from The Challenge that I followed.
Thanks for stopping by!
