I am so very excited to bring you our first Papertrey Princesses challenge of 2010! Get your creativity on, because this is an inspiration challenge!
This photograph comes to us courtesy of Country Living Magazine. Doesn't it just make you happy? Be inspired by the colors, the materials, the layout - whatever you like! Here is my card (you can click the photo for a larger version).
For a challenge like this, I like to start by jotting some notes down - what is my first reaction when I see this picture? The things I picked up on right away were the great colors, the pinked edges of the blue striped fabric, and the overall sewing theme. Quilter's Sampler seemed like a good place to start, and the rest took off from there. I used my Copic markers to color the bits in, going for Spring Rain, New Leaf, and Spring Moss colors.
Now it is your turn! It was great to use a fresh, new color combination and stamps that haven't seen ink recently and I am very excited to see how you interpret the challenge. The important part is to have fun!
Once you've uploaded it, please share your challenge card with us by adding a link to your blog or gallery in the Official Papertrey Princesses Challenge Thread on the PTI forum. Please also include a link back to this challenge post. In two weeks, Lee will be hosting a new challenge for us.
I am so glad that the group has been revived! Many thanks to Diane for her efforts and I look forward to seeing you all around! Have a great day ladies!
