Week 10 - Photo Inspiration

Hi everyone, Jacqui M here. Thanks to everyone that entered last weeks Furry and Feathery challenge. Steph will announce the winners below.

And in order are

Congratulations guys. Please contact Steph on to collect your prizes.

Now onto this weeks theme, and I have chosen the gorgeous photo below for inspiration. Now you can use either the colours or flowers , or if you like, both.

This week we are being sponsored by the Fabulous Whimsy Stamps!. So what are you waiting for lol, come on get those entries in .


Here are all our DT projects this week!


For my card this week I chose to use the colours from the inspiration photo above. The image is my hand drawn character, she will be available soon from my store the poodles digi doodles. I have used the trusty old Promarkers to colour her, DP were all from my stash. I used a Martha Stewart Edge Punch for the border, the tiny Polka Dot Buttons are Papermania.

My card was inspired by the flowers in Jacqui's photo. I used Gracie from Whimsy Stamps and coloured her with ProMarkers. The backing paper is by Craftwork Cards, the green backing card is from my own stash, the green and white ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the sentiment was a free digi I found via Google images and the flower and gem is by Bo Bunny.

Hi there!  This week I have chosen Gracie's Roses image from our wonderful sponsor Whimsy Stamps, printed onto Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin' Up! and coloured in with the fabulous new Flexmarkers from Letraset which are currently only available from Create and Craft.  I have die cut the image using Spellbinders Floral Doily Motifs.  The background paper is from the Chanteuse Collection from Kaisercraft, which is matted and layered onto Regal Rose and Rose Red cardstock from Stampin' Up! (keeping the theme going!!).

The sentiment is from a lovely stamp set by Stempelglede, called Just a Note.  I have been trying to buy this set for ages, but it kept selling out.  I thought the sentiment was perfect for this theme!  I have used a Labels Eight Spellbinders die to cut the sentiment out, and edged this with an 18kt gold leafing pen from Krylon (well, she is a special little girl!).  I've then added a metal butterfly from my stash, rosebuds from Wild Orchid Crafts, and pearls from Stampin' Up!.  The base card is from Craftwork Cards.  Looking forward to seeing all your lovely creations :) xx

Jacqui H: You may have guessed I don't use a computer for crafting, not because I can't, but because I don't have one at home! I live on my Blackberry (other smart phones are available). I used the picture for the colours, I used my nesties to cut out the shapes.
Coloured an image from Whimsy Stamps. I then added a spray of flowers.
This card was made for my friend Lynn who is suffering with shingles! Get well soon huni!!

Josie: This week I used this lovely stamp from Whimsy stamps.  My inspiration was to use the colour theme from the photo, and I coloured it with Pro Markers. I added some glitter to the bees wings to add some sparkle. I also used two different Basic Grey backing papers.

Shelby This week I'm using this pretty image from Whimsy Stamps and I took inspiration both from the colors as well as the flowers.  The flowers were colored up with copics.  The pretty paper is from Cosmo Cricket's collection called Clementine.  The vase and the flower centers got some stickles in stardust and the around the flowers I added some Ranger liquid pearls.  Thanks for coming by to see us today, and I hope to see your beautiful creations!
