I love using challenges and sketches as a jumping off point,
especially for layouts.
This month over at Scrapbook.com there is a new challenge
inspired by the gallery full of wonderful work there.
The premise - lift any example of a card and/or layout in the gallery.
The twist - let someone else pick your inspiration for you.
I jumped in with both feet and let someone pick for me,
and I'm so glad I did! I never would have even attempted to copy
Here's my interpretation:
The soft, beautiful Country Boutique papers from
Fancy Pants Designs are so easy to work with,
they practically speak for themselves.
I used a Studio G floral stamp that I've had forever and added some
Liquid Pearls for dimension.
Diamond Stickles on the tips of the roses add some sparkle,
and a few strands of twine anchor them to the page.
My trusty "A Good Life" stamp makes another appearance.
(Love that thing!)
And, of course, an arrow had to make its way on here somehow.
Check back tomorrow for part 2 of the
Gallery Inspired Challenge
to see how I incorporated this awesome stencil from
The Crafter's Workshop on my layout:
(Isn't it divine?!)
