JAI #89 - Just Add Inspiration

Happy Friday to you

This week Delys has provided us with a beautiful inspiration photo to work with.  Look, isn't it beautiful


I took a very literal inspiration from this photo, using the colours and the silhouette, and this is what I came up with


I decided to try for an old style, polaroid/border photo look, so I masked off some glossy white cardstock and sponged some Daffodil Delight, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Tangerine Tango and Wisteria Wonder inks over the image and sentiment that I had stamped in Versamark and embossed with Black embossing powder.  That panel is then mounted on a Basic Black card base using dimensionals.

Well, that's it from me.  Hope you have a wonderful day and weekend.

Thanks for visiting
