Create A Smile Stamps Challenge!

Welcome to another crafty challenge from Create A Smile Stamps!  We're mixing things up a bit this time by using a Mood Board!

I was always daunted by creating from a mood board. I didn't really know what I should do with all these images!  But I finally figured out it's all in what speaks to you. The images themselves?  Or the colours? Or both?  You can find inspiration in all the photos or just one! It's all up to you:)

I found inspiration in the colours and the floral images. And this is what I came up with..

I used the fabulous Floral Decorations Stamp Set and created my own patterned paper. Instead of black ink, I used a dark brown ink to stamp the images. I coloured them in using yellow, brown and pinks.  I decided to add in a purple as well!

For the sentiment, I used the large "you" from the All About You Stamp Set. I stamped it in the same brown ink and used my purple markers to colour it in. I then painstakingly fussy cut it! To seperate it from the stamped panel, I used the 3rd largest die from the Scalloped Rectangles Cool Cuts. I stamped the sub-sentiment from the same sentiment set then foam mounted the scalloped die on top.

I used liquid adhesive to adhere the large "you".  Because there were wood veneers on the mood board, I went through my stash and found a few wooden hearts which I glued down.  I put the panel onto a kraft cardstock and called this card done!

I hope you enjoyed my take on the mood board. I cannot wait to see what you come up with!!  Remember you're playing for a €20 gift certificate to the CAS store!  There's a bunch of new goodies in the shop so a shopping spree will be fun!

Thanks for stopping by today! See you soon!
