ASM - Photo inspiration ....

... Good evening all!  This week our challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! is a Photo Inspiration.  Our sponsor this week is Sami Stamps and the winner of the challenge will receive a $12 gift voucher to her store!  Here's my take:

Birthday Girl - Photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Sami Stamps Digi - Zombie Beauty; Christmas Lights (don't know who made them); Stampin' Up! - Gorgeous Grunge, Sassy Salutations
Inks: Distress - Antique Linen, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey; SU - Real Red
Dies: Spellbinders - Mega Ovals Lg (S5-023) #4, Mega Oval Scalloped Lg (S5-024) #4; Die-namics - High Rise Numbers
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Gold Foil Card; Copics


So you're trying to figure out how I got this card from the inspiration photo!  I took the colours and the Christmas lights.  I saw this digi image - a tall, young lady - so pretty (albeit a zombie) and decided to make a birthday card.    I used the gold in the mat layers. I created a bokeh effect background paper on my computer by blurring a photo of Christmas lights and ornaments and then adding a subtle repeating text.  I stamped a row of Christmas lights at the top which I coloured with Copics and then adhere it to the gold mat.  I printed off the digi image and cut out one using the oval die and while still in the die I added some colour to create depth.  I coloured one of the other images and then very, very carefully cut it out and adhered it to the card.  I finished the front with a simple number!  For the inside (which I forgot to photograph) I used the grunge image and a bold funky birthday greeting in red.

Hopefully this card will have reached my niece by now - I can't believe she's 13 - they grow up so fast!!!


Don't forget to check out the inspiration cards from the rest of the team - we all took something very different from the inspiration photo!  Bye for now.

This is such a terrific take on this photo Deborah. I'm sure that a 13 girl will absolutely LOVE it (I know my daughter would). Nice job dear lady.
