ATSM Challenge 70

Hi Everybody,

how time flies, it’s Wednesday again and time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More, Challenge #70 – Photo Inspiration!!!

I know you’ll love this one … it’s very sparkly and Christmassy … the picture to take inspiration from… here it is:

… but then of course you could also take the colours only to get your inspiration from or go for some thing non-traditional or starry …

We got a new sponsor this week …. DigiDarla Designs

The winner will get 5 images of their choice.

This week I have several cards for your inspiration. They all are following the Christmassy Theme …

My first one is also non-traditional, and the inspiration came from the colours and the round shape of baubles. There is also a bit of starry sparkle going on. Here it is:

non trad christmas

I am also entering this card into the Addicted to CAS ‘One Layer’ Challenge.

My next one has a more traditional feel to it, and inspiration was taken from the colours and the soft matt surface texture of the baubles which I tried to re-create by using some embossed vellum and matt silver mirror card. The peel off border symbolises tinsel. Here it is:

Fairy Christmas Tree

For my last card I went for a modern traditional feel, if there is such a thing.

Holographic Chritmas Tree

I hope you enjoyed browsing through my cards today.

Sorry about the pictures, I am still working on the lighting for indoor pictures during heavy downpours … 🙂
