Paper smooches Sparks challenge...

Hi everyone,

Display our button

Just a quick post to show my entry to this week paper smooches sparks challenge.

The challenge this week was 'picture perfect', where by you use a certain picture as your inspiration...and run with it!  So here's the 'inspiration' picture...

I took my inspiration from the neautral colour palette, and here's my creation...

The idea I had in my head was to make it look like little portrait pictures of the paper smooches 'chubby chums' hanging on a wall, I do love these cute little critters and the idea that they're all from one happy family is just too cute!  I stamped the images in distress ink and used a water brush to water colour them and give a kind of 'sepia'effect.  I made the picture frames out of brown card stock and stamped the woodgrain effect on using a hero arts stamp with more distress ink.  The background is patterned paper and the sentiment is from the same, delightful, 'chubby chums' stamp set.

Hope you like it xxx

p.s ...any comments are very much appreciated...I'd love to know what you think :)
