Photo Inspiration

The Whiff of Joy Challenge this week is photo inspiration.  It’s the first time I have done a photo inspiration challenge and I am amazed at how different each card from the DT is.

I have used Willow with strawberry basket from last year’s summer kit for my card.  I love her hair and have not used this image for ages.

I have used October Afternoon papers, combined with some MS ATP punching and a bit of stitching to give a country feel to the card.   I coloured the image with distress inks.  Colours used are:

Skin – Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany
Hair – Walnut Stain and Black Soot
Dress – a mix of Aged Mahogany and Fired Brick, apples are a mix of Shabby Shutters and Bundled Sage
Basket – Tea Dye and Vintage Photo

The ticket sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Stamps – LOVE these, the fonts and sentiments are fantastic.  The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, I used 15mm roses and a 35mm wild rose.  The leaves were punched with an X-Cut ivy leaf punch – I got four different ones the other day when they were reduced to half price.  Love them as they emboss the veins on the leaves too.  Don’t you just love a bargain lol.  Cost me £14 for 4 punches – love it.

These are so not my usual colours but I really enjoyed making this card even though it was a challenge lol.

Thanks for stopping by,
