World Cardmaking Day - Challenge #5
Challenge #5 was all about finding inspiration from magazine ads, fashion, and home decor. One of the ads - used my favorite color scheme, teal, robin's egg, chartreuse, etc. I decided I needed to push the envelope a little more - so I chose the red dress and leather purse. Something about these two items reminded me of distress inks - so I took this opportunity to try out one of my new stamp sets (BTW: I love the city scene). The end product is something I really like - different but with little touches of my own style - layering, patterned paper, flowers, etc. This challenge was very cool, very cool indeed.
P.S. I tried without luck to find an easy way to link to the stamp set. The name of the set is Rockstar by Tim Holtz. It's sold and distributed by Stamper's Anonymous.
