Addicted to Stamps and More #115 - Photo Inspiration


Hello everyone, I hope you're having a good week . It's time to start a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More and this week we have a beautiful seasonal photo as our inspiration. 

Our generous sponsor is StampArt Design who will be awarding a prize of 5 digis from their store to this week's winner.


For my DT card, I brushed distress inks onto the background and spattered with water, cut a hexagon aperture and some diecut leaves which I coloured with various distress inks and stamped the sentiment.

I'm sure you will agree, there's so much inspiration to take from this week's photo and we look forward to seeing your fabulous creations. Don't forget to pop over to the ATSM challenge blog to see inspiration from the DT.
