Sweet Stampin' Design Team Card - Photo Inspiration

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team Challenge card with you. Our theme this week is 'Photo Inspiration' (see below). So for my card I used the rain, umbrella and yellow to inspire me. As soon as I spotted this Elizabeth Bell image I knew it would be perfect. I coloured her with the new Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens (which I love) in aqua and yellows to tie in with the photo.

Don't forgot to enter our challenge you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize! 

Here's What I Did
I die cut a square from lemon card and die cut again to add the pin hole details and matted it onto the 5" x 5" card base. I die cut the image and coloured it with Spectrum Noir Illustrator pens, then added glitter to the rain drops and puddle. The completed topper was added the die cut aqua mat and attached to the card front using foam tape.

Next I die cut the word 'memories' and the tiny badge twice from 2 shades of aqua card (one is slighly darker than the other). I slightly offset the 2 words and glued them together and attached them to the card front.

To complete the card I added a touch of glitter to the spots on her umbrella.

Beautiful colouring again Janine... and I love the clever design too - that word looks so good alongside the image! I always struggle with a card design... if it was just colouring - I'd be fine!
