Happy Thursday! It is also the 25th of the month so it is time for another Papertrey Bloghop.
This month the challenge was to use this photo for inspiration.
This is what I came up with.
The first thing that caught my eye in the photo besides the colors was the lining in the suitcase. I ended up making my own patterned paper to match using an image from the Mat Stack 2 set and the tiny dot in Little Argyle. I stamped those images on Vintage Cream Cardstock using Close To My Heart Bamboo Ink.
This is what the background looks like close up
The next thing that I noticed were the flowers and the jar. I stamped the images from the Summer Jar Fillers Set scanned them, made them smaller then printed them out. I colored the flowers with Copic Sketch Markers then added Liquid Pearls to the middles. I watercolored the jar a light blue to match the girls dress then cut out the flowers and attached them to the jar with foam tape to give them dimension. Next I added the sentiment from Little Lables that I also scanned, made smaller and printed out. The side panel was embossed with script that was inspired by the books. I made some ribbon to match the piece around the jar in the photo using vintage cream twill an the same image I used for the patterned paper but I did not like how it looked when I tried to add it to the jar so I left it off. This is what it looked like though. I finished the card off with some crochet trim and lots of machine stitching. I also used this months Sketch For You To Try for my layout.
There is still time for you to play along too. Check out Jen's blog for more details.
That's all for now I look forward to seeing what everyone else has come up with on Nicole's blog. As always thanks for stopping by and I hope your day is a great one!
