Shopping Our Stash #150 - Inspiration Photo
This week's SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge is based on this inspiration photo from Pinterest.
Here's a link in case you want to check it out for yourself: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/47498971044269957
For my project, I decided to use the colours in the clock to make a vintage looking Mother's Day card.
The only thing I didn't have already in my stash for this card was the image which I found on THE GRAPHICS FAIRY. Some of the items on this project (like those flower buttons and ribon) are so old I don't even remember how many years ago I bought them!!
I started with a piece of design paper (SU) and covered the whole thing in washi tape, I wanted the colours underneath to show through but be very muted. Added the burlap and peachy sheer ribbon (both SU) and the buttons. The image I tore around the edges and brushed over with vintage photo distress ink (Tim Holtz). The sentiment stickers at the bottom are from the chit chat set (Tim Holtz).
So let's see what you can come up with based on the inspiration photo! Don't forget to upload your project on the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog an visit my teammies' blogs to show them some crafty love!!
