It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Carol has chosen a most interesting one for us.
What do you see in this picture that inspires a card? Buildings? Snow? Lights? The thing that caught my attention was the light pole.
I stamped the lamp post from Penny Black and clear heat embossed it so I could ink the background with several Distress Inks after first masking off the area around the candle. Then I went in and added yellow ink to the circle, fading it into the blue. Next came the splattered snow and a sentiment from CP. I also added a little snow to the post with Snow Marker that puffs when you heat it.
I can't wait to see how the photo inspires you. Check out the Design Team and guests Carol and Melanie to see what they saw.
You've done a fantastic job of inking this background to show the glow of the lamp and the falling snow! Awesome card, my friend!ReplyDelete
