Its week 2 with the new photo inspiration over at The Alley Way's Be Inspired Challenge!! The photo is positively yummy!!! I really would love a glass of whatever is in those jars!!! Here's the photo:
I love the colors in this photo and i like to think that the drink is a strawberry limeade, so i went in the strawberry direction! To start i stamped the tiny strawberries from the Hey Cupcake stamp set on watercolor paper. I colored them with my distress markers, cut them out and added a little Wink of Stella.
Next i wanted to see if i could hang them in a circle window and was hoping the would hand nicely! Well it turned out pretty good! I die cut the circle with a spellbinder circle die. Then i cut the next biggest circle die out of some minty green polka-dot paper.
I added twine and twine bows to each of my strawberries, then i glued them to the inside of the card, making sure you could see them in the circle. To hide the twine and give the strawberries a background i added the green circle with foam tape to the inside of the card, kind of like a shadow box. I decided not to adhere the strawberries with foam tape, but instead left them to hand free. They only move if you shake the card.
Last i bent and stamped the sentiment sweetness around the circle and with a grey marker added lines along the card's edge.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! You have 3 weeks to play along with us at the Be Inspired Challenge, i hope to see your creations!!
