And...the amazing sponsor for this week...Verve Stamps! Verve provided the entire design team with the set Strong Anchor and the matching dies. The Lead for this challenge (the winner chosen by the design team) will also receive this set free! Thank you Verve!!
The inspiration is definitely nautical - but if you aren't feeling nautical or don't have any nautical supplies - check out what else is hiding that picture. Look at those shoes and sunglasses and what about the royal blue handbag and floppy hat. Or just the fabulous fresh colors of navy and yellow and green. Or the layered postage shapes and all of the woods! I look forward to seeing what you come up with! Here is how I was inspired...using the Verve Strong Anchor set...
- Stamps: Verve Strong Anchor
- Paper: Stampin' Up Night of Navy, Crumb Cake, MME Kate & Co. Oxford Lane 6x6
- Ink: Stampin' Up Going Gray, Night of Navy
- Accessories: Verve Strong Anchor dies, Papertrey Woodgrain Impression Plate (on ship's wheel), Spellbinders square and postal square, My Favorite Things fishtail dies, May Arts twine, Studio Calico sequins (FYI: the Studio Calico sequins come in a fun multi-pack with the woodgrain sequins(!), dark blue, yellow, lt gray and pinkish. I wanted to use the blue and yellow but they are fairly big and I did a small 4x4 card - so the blue and yellow on my card are actually from Ellen Hutson)
