For Your Inspiration #31

Happy Thursday everyone!  It's time for our next photo inspiration challenge from For Your Inspiration.  As always, you have two weeks to play along.  Just post your project on the FYI blog by Wednesday, June 20th.

This challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.  Here is the photo that Steph chose for this week:


I was inspired by the colors and the the structure of the ruin.


When I saw that gorgeous deep blue night sky in the photo I went hunting through my blue cardstock stash and was happy to find this large blue scrap just waiting for me.  I have no idea what company it came from, but it's a perfect match to the photo.  I used Papertrey's Victorian Lace Border die to create those golden layers that mimic the light through the structure.  These pieces are actually the negative of the die cut.

I chose to work with Bugaboo's Love Conquers Silhouette image.  Isn't it beautiful?  I printed it on vellum and then adhered it to a Mat Stack 4 die cut with the rhinestones custom colored with a Copic marker.

Be sure to stop by the rest of the DT member's blogs to see their beautiful cards -- links are on my sidebar.


Blessings,
