Here is my card for this week's Basic Grey Challenge where there is a lovely picture to give you lots of inspiration. Here's the brief:
"This weeks challenge is another new one for us, this one is called our Inspiration Challenge, and the way that this one works is that we will show you a photo and we would like you to take Inspiration from it, so it can be anything from patterns, shapes, colours even textures, let your imagination run wild and have fun interpreting the photo".
What a stunning photo Martine has chosen for us to use. It reminds me of when you've just changed your bedding and you can catch the smell of fresh linen floating through the air.
Okay I admit it, my card is a bit quirky this week but I do like the way it turned out I think. I decided to curve my image on the card so that it became very 3D and hopefully you can pick that up from this close up piccie. My reason?..... I just imagined those net curtains blowing in the breeze and I think that also translates in the image itself as Mo's gorgeous Prairie Girl has that type of dress on. For the pattern that might be on the nets I paper pieced parts of it and then embossed and sanded it for lots of texture. It was a bit fiddly to cut out and match up but I got there in the end.
My papers are from Basic Grey's Stella Ruby range and I've coloured my image with Copics. The ribbon is one I picked up earlier this year from HobbyCraft and the sentiment is by Studio G. I punched out some little Hydrangeas with my MS punch and added some Liquid Pearls to their centres.
I really hope you can join in with the challenge as you have a whole fortnight now. Be sure to hop over and check out the stunning work of my fellow teamies - everyone has interpreted the picture so differently!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
