ASM - Photo Inspiration ....

.... Well hello again!  Can you believe it's the end of August - this month has really flown by.  Anyway, it does mean that it's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  It's Team A with you this week and we have our Photo Inspiration challenge.  Use the photo to inspire your card and tell us what you used.  Here's my card:

Here for You - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: QKR Stampede Digi - Flowers; Stampin' Up! - And Many More; Waltzingmouse - Woodgrain
Inks: SU - Smoky Slate; Archival - Jet Black
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Smoky Slate; Copic Markers; SU Window Punch; Wink of Stella Brush - Clear


Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede and the winner of the challenge will receive three digi images from them.  I love the black and white photo on our graphic and I used the flower for inspiration,  using the lovely digital Flowers image on this card.  I printed it on white card and then coloured the entire image with a very pale grey and then added a touch of colour to the flowers and leaves.  I finished the flowers with some sparkle all over, and then I cut the image out.  I like the wood grain finish to the floor in the photo too, so I echoed it by cutting a panel of grey card and then stamping the wood grain image using  a second generation impression.  I added some texture by distressing the edge of the grey card before adhering it to the card base.  I finished the front with a simple sentiment.  The inside is blank.

For more inspiration check out our blog to what the team have made.  Good luck and have fun!

Back to work this week has disrupted my blogging time; I think blog-visiting and commenting should be part of my job description! Your card here is a gorgeous take on the inspiration photo. Your pretty flower cluster, with whispers of pink and green, set against the soft grey backdrop...gorgeous!!
