These weeks seem to roll around faster and faster! I can't believe we are in the first week of Winter. The days are definitely shorter and a whole lot colder! It's only supposed to be 10 degrees (Celsius) here today. Brr!!! Perfect weather though to stay indoors and ... CRAFT!!!! Its a new challenge at Just Add Ink this week set by - ME!!! And for those who know me well and my favourite Stampin' Up! colour then you would say this is very me. Bermuda Bay and Gold. Can't go wrong with those two colours.
This week is an inspiration challenge. The party scene and the balloons are perfect timing for my birthday coming up this Saturday! Here is the inspiration picture ...
When I first saw the party picture on Pinterest it took my breath away. WOW right!!
I thought the colour combo was amazing and I pinned the picture on my Pinterest board - Colour Combos straight away to use for a future creation and for some inspiration.
When the call out came from the other Just Add Ink ladies for some possible challenges I put this pic up and well the rest is history.
Here is what I created from the inspiration picture
The black striped DSP is from the Neutrals DSP stack. All the patterns have been changed up to give them a fresh, even bold modern look. I'm loving the stripes, just sayin'.
The balloon is stamped in Bermuda Bay and then I've used the 'birthday' from the set Crazy About You and heat embossed that with gold embossing powder.
While waiting for my new catalogue order, which should be delievered any day now , I have some of the new Gold Metallic Thread in my order. So while I couldn't use that I had to do the next best thing to get a fine strand of gold thread and that was to pull the gold strand out of the Gold Bakers Twine. That works a treat!!!
Come and check out all the other creative gals on the Just Add Ink Design Team. We would love you join in this weeks challenge and to see what inspires you from the inspiration pic!
