Photo Inspiration Challenge at Addicted To Stamps And More






Heippa kaverit!
Uusi haaste on taas pyörähtänyt käyntiin Addicted To Stamps And More- haasteblogissa ja tällä kertaa inspiroidutaan tuosta ihanasta, suorastaan tropiikkisesta rantsukuvasta! Kun sitä vertaa minun korttiini, voi ajatella, että mites nuo liittyvät yhteen... Mutta antakaas kun selitän. :)

Nähtyäni inspiskuvan lautatuoleineen muistin hiljattain ladanneeni ilmaisia "lankkudigipapereita" Far Far Hill- sivustolta ja päätin ottaa ne käyttöön. Halusin käyttää myös ruskeaa ja veden sävyjä.

Inpiraatiokuvasta pomppaa silmään myös tuo herkullisen näköinen drinksu... Varmasti aivan ihana juoma, mutta itse olen enempi punaviinin lipittäjä -nappasin WOJ:n viime syksyn kokoelmasta Henryn viiniä siemailemaan ja kortti alkoikin olla sitten siinä! Olipas aika haasteellinen väritettävä tämä -pikkuriikkisiä yksityiskohtia, huh. :)  Lisäsin kakkupaperin tuomaan lisää valkoista korttiini ja kekkailin The Twineryn leipurinnyöristä ja parista haaraniitistä pienen rustiikkisen lisäkoristuksen. Siinä se!

ATSM DT on tehnyt jälleen kerran upeita kortteja joten klikkailepas itsesi haasteblogin puolelle. Toivottavasti inspiroidut tuosta ihanasta kuvasta ja liityt joukkoomme. Askartelun iloa!

Hi friends!
We have such a fun week ahead of us at  Addicted To Stamps And More... Some time ago our lovely challenge blog owner Kylie revamped the challenges and we now have some new regular themes, photo inspiration challenge being one of them. I really love this photo she has chosen, I wish it was summer already... When you look at my card you might think it has nothing to do with this beachy picture but let me explain! :)

The wooden chair in the inspiration picture made me think about some free wooden background papers from Far Far Hill that I recently downloaded. The one I chose to use has some oceanic colors too so it seemed to fit even better! 

Then... The yummy looking drink in the inspiration picture really catches the eye, doesn't it? :) It looks amazing but I'm more of a wine girl myself so I chose Henry The Mouse from WOJ, he also seems to be enjoying his glass of red. :) The image is colored with Copics and there's also a little bit of brown chalk on the ground. Coloring was quite tricky because the details in this are tiny! I wanted to have more white in my card so I added a doily, after that it still seemed to need something so I chose two brads and some baker's twine from The Twinery for my (hopefully!) rustic looking embellishments. 

I hope you now head on over to the challenge blog for more DT inspiration and challenge details. I'm loving the ATSM DT cards this week (well, I always do!) and I'm sure you will too. Happy crafting!
