ATSM #355: Photo Inspiration


Hello again, friends! Time for another challenge over at Addicted To Stamps and More. This week the theme is Photo Inspiration. All you have to do is create a project inspired by this fun and vibrant photo. You can pick the colours, elements, textures etc. There's no right or wrong answer.

Power Poppy's Seaside Sweetness seemed to capture all that I wanted in the card. All I needed to do is add some Nuvo Pearls and Twine. For the background, I used MFT Diagonal Sentiment Strip Die-namic. Here's my offering for this challenge:



A closer look at the image. I coloured it with Faber Castell Polychromo pencils and added a touch of Stardust Stickle.
