Inspire.Create Challenge #002

In Stampin' Up! by Emma Goddard7 Comments

Welcome back for another Inspire.Create Challenge.

This week is a sketch challenge so the colours, stamp set design is completely free choice, I love seeing the variety a challenge brings and a huge thank you to all the amazing entries we had over the last 2 weeks for the first challenge.

I was looking forward getting my Vintage Leaves back out and inky! Its that time of year again when the autumn feel is in the air and I love of the tones of orange and yellows we have available within our inks.

The background is super easy, letting the Painted Autumn paper do all the work! I have picked out the Cajun Craze for the base card to coordinate with the designer paper and added a pop of gold & a few sparkles (of course!) The sparkles are from the Metallics Sequin Assortment which has approx 750 gold, silver, black, copper and iridescent sparkly sparkles for all your sparkle needs! lol

The leaves were stamped with versamark ink and then embossed in white on watercolour card. I used the aqua painters to add Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze ink to the leaves.

There are also coordinating dies with this Vintage Leaves set but I wanted the image to be cut really close to the outline of each leaf so I decided to hand cut each one out & popped up onto dimentionals.

That’s it from me for today, but please be sure to pop on over to the Inspire Create Challenge blog and see all our amazing Design Team Members and why not play along too?!

New challenges are set every fortnight on a Wednesday, but more details and guidelines can be found over on the blog. You can also grab this badge, add it to you own side bar and share the fun with others.
