Addicted to Stamps and More challenge #40 - Photo inspiration

Hi everyone, this week's challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More is Photo inspiration. 

Our sponsor is Heather Ellis who is offering a lovely prize to our Top Addict. 

I have to admit to ahem, finding it quite difficult to make a card using photo inspiration. Here's my DT card which I made one step at a time. When using photo inspiration, we can choose one or more elements of the photo, for example the chair, sea, hat, drink, or a colour or colours. I began by stamping a chair twice, once on DP to paper piece it and then added the other elements one by one to create the scene. All stamps by Lindsay Morgan. I added colour using colour dusters and a little sponge with TH distress inks and shadows with a coloured pencil. 

Please do visit the ATSM blog and check out all the wonderful creations by the other DT members and we hope you've been inspired!

Thanks for visiting today.

A stunning garden scene, I love your choice of stamps and your colouring, beautiful work has made for me, not just a card, but something to frame and admire every day. Caz

It doesn't look like you had any problems at all using the photo inspiration! I love the paper piecing on the chair and you stamped all of the individual stamps to make the scene look just perfect!

Me again, sorry! That's a great tip for the photo challenge, if anyone is struggling. Just to make up the card bit by bit and see where it takes you. TFS.
