Addicted to Stamps Challenge #165

Hello!

It's time for a new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More! The challenge is a photo inspiration!



Dana Warren - Kraft Paper Stamps - STAMPlorations

Our sponsor for this challenge is STAMPlorations and i used two digi stamps they provided to the design team! I started by printing the framed pumpkin and sentiment on some white card stock.

Next i colored the framed pumpkin with my Spectrum Noir markers, then cut around the frame. I also trimmed the sentiment to a strip.

To follow the photo i cut some thin strips from red, green, blue, purple and orange card stock. Then i adhered them too a 5.5 inch square card. Next i cut a thick strip of black card stock adding it to my card on top of of the colored strips. Bellow that i added the sentiment strip.

Last i just adhered the framed pumpkin on top of the black strip. I thought about adding sequins or enamel dots, but finally decided that the stripes made the card busy enough!!

I hope you will play along with us at Addicted to Stamps and More!! Thanks for stopping by!!
