Time to get inspired-CSAYL

I love all kinds of challenges but I think my favorite has to be inspiration challenges.  You get a picture to look at and let it take your creative imagination on a journey.  This weeks challenge  at Christmas Stampin All Year Long is a inspiration challenge.  Here's the picture that inspired the team to create some really great cards!

Such a great picture and so many choices.  Should I use the cakes to inspire me to create something yummy or the shapes of the plates or the color pallete?  I  loved that the colors weren't traditional Christmas colors so I chose to challenge myself in that direction and this is what I came up with.

I started by printing this cute Bugaboo Stamps image on watercolor paper.  I colored the image using Stampin Ups watercolor pencils and a watercolor brush.  To give it that cool wintry feel I added some snowflakes, glitter and sentiment from my Snowflakes set (Stampin Up retired).

We'd love for you to join us in this weeks challenge.  You could be chosen as our guest designer!

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN

Hugs, Becky
