Hello! Today I have something a bit different for a Photo Inspiration challenge.....I used one of my own photos instead of a stamped image. I think that is allowed?? maybe?? And I did do stamping for the sentiment. When I saw the inspiration from What If? Wednesday challenge, I thought of a photo that I had made and tweaked in Photoshop to give it a look of watercolor. I thought Why Not? Use it.
I cropped, resized, and printed the image on White CS. After trimming I assembled the card with a Black card base, a layer of woodgrain patterned paper from MME embossed with a Darice Wood Grain EF, and a strip of Black CS stamped with a Repeat Impressions sentiment. That was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White EP. I used a layout from Tuesday Morning Sketch(below) from last week's challenge shown below. Too late for that challenge but I thought the sketch was just right to use with the photo. Challenges: The House That Stamps Built: What If? Wednesday Photo Inspiration J1516. Inspired by the Pelican and Wood. Time Out Challenges: Masculine with optional twist of Mixed Media. Use stamps and ink plus 2 other elements that add texture and/or dimension. I did use stamping with Versamark, die cuts for dimension, and dry embossing for texture. I think the use of a photo qualifies as Mixed Media. Happy Little Stampers: June Mixed Media Challenge Texture. I have added texture with dry embossing of the pattern background and heat embossing of the sentiment.
Have a great day! I love reading your comments.
