Photo Inspration at Paper Crafting Journey!!

Wow, we had loads of entries for our Anything Goes challenge at Paper Crafting Journey... I always love stopping by the blogs and seeing everyone's gorgeous creations!!! But two weeks has gone by and we start a new challenge today. This fortnight we have a photo inspiration challenge.  Take from it what you wish, the image itself or the colours.. your choice but this must be the source of your inspiration. We are sponsored by Saturated Canary this fortnight and I used Hugs and Kisses.
Photo Inspiration
I went with the colours of the photo but I didn't have the exact colours so used different shades of those colours!!!
I coloured Hugs and Kisses in with tria markers. I was going to go with a white theme behind her but then decided I wanted to try some new techniques that I've just learnt about so I distressed around the edge of the card base with pink ink, then inked an embossing folder and ran the white cardstock through the embossing machine. Love the way it turned out although not as perfect as I probably would have liked! I also die cut some flowers and embossed them the say way but I mistakenly embossed first then die cut so it pretty much flattened all the embossing so a note for next time!! to finish off I just added the rhinestones to the middle of the flowers!!!
Well I hope you can join us this fortnight for our Inspiration challenge at Paper Crafting Journey!!! Be sure to follow the rules and only enter up to three entries otherwise you will not be eligible for the prize that is up for grabs!!!
