Yay for weekends off and a happy Saturday to all of you blog friends! It's too early for the ski slopes to be in action yet here in VA, but the gals at Inspired By...All the Little Things challenge blog have gotten their skis ready to inspire you in this great photo! I don't own any ski stamps but was inspired by the criss- crossing of the skis in the photo to use brown plaid paper. I used PTI's Peaceful Pinecones set along with berries from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals. I couldn't capture the sheen and sparkle of the pinecones, but it's there after adding Martha Stewart carrara marble fine glitter to the cone tips using SU's fine tip glue pen. The glitter is nice but it covers up the kissing technique I used with stamping the pinecones. I stamped first with a lighter brown (Warm Wool - WPlus9) then rocked the edges on a darker brown ink pad (Coconut Husk - WPlus9). The pine needle branches were stamped with Beanstalk and Last Leaf inks (WPlus9).
We're thrilled to have Rosemary Dennis guest with us today! I've been a long time admirer of her stamping style and she regularly rocks the challenges here at Inspired By! Welcome Rosemary!
So, let us see how YOU are inspired! The challenge linky will close on Friday, November 18, at 12:00 pm (PST). Be sure to check out all the inspiration over on the Inspired By blog - the design team has some awesome samples to jumpstart your creativity!
