ASM - Photo Inspiration ...

....  Good evening! It's time for our new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  This week it's our Photo Inspiration challenge.  You must follow the photo provided, but you can take anything from the photo - colour, theme, image - whatever inspires you.  Just tell us what you did!  Here's my take on the photo:

Merry Chirstmas - photo by Deborah Frings - Deborah's Gems

Stamps: Penny Black - Majestic; Stamper's Anonymous - Tim Holtz's Crazy Talk; Uniko - Stunning Snowflakes; Chocolate Baroque - Snowflakes (don't remember the name of the set)
Inks: Versamark; Versafine - Onyx Black; Memento - London Fog
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles #5, Dual Stitched Rectangles #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Stampin' Up! Card - Real Red; Martha Stewart - Red Glitter; Silver Embossing Powder


I think it's fairly obvious what my inspiration is - the snowflakes, the red and the branch.  I die cut a red panel and adhered it flat to the card.  On the white panel (also die cut) I stamped the tree and sentiment in black.  I then added a flurry of snowflakes, stamped in Versamark and heat embossed with silver powder.  Then I added glue to the berries on the tree and added lots of red glitter.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of red card.  On the white panel I stamped a simple greeting and added some more snowflakes.

I took a close up of the glitter on the tree as you can't really see just how pretty the little red berries are in the bit photo above:

I'm submitting this card to the current challenges at Inkspirational - INK#95 where the colour challenge is that anything goes with silver, and at The Paper Players - PP#270 - the team want black and white, and either silver or gold with one other colour.

Our sponsor for this week's challenge is Kylie's business - Happy Little Stampers, and the winner of the challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate.


Don't forget to visit our blog to check out what the rest of the team have made.  That's all for now, don't forget to have fun with the challenge - we look forward to seeing what you make!
